We are excited to share another one of our Innovative Grant winners with you! This week, we are featuring a project from East Village Elementary by Ms. Jacobs & Ms. Boelzner. Students "unlocked" the New Year by solving challenges in a life-sized board game. Each month, students will solve fun and rigorous problems to review and prepare for new content. Students traveled around the "game board" (or school!) to solve problems to unlock their next challenge - what a fun way to kick off the New Year!
Through our Innovative Grant program, made possible by your sponsorships and donations to our annual Stem Soiree, teachers have the opportunity to submit an idea or project through an application, and if their project is chosen, they receive money for materials and supplies along with a reward for trying something new. We believe it is important to encourage teachers to seek out and implement teaching strategies that reach all types of learners and to reward them for thinking outside of the box!
