Jr. High Students Create Playground Proposals & Campaigns in STEAM Project
This week, our middle school students are working on a STEAM project together, researching playgrounds that would serve all students. They‘re researching options, needs, and legal requirements to write their proposals this week, while also organizing fundraising ideas, events, and campaigns to present to peers later this week. Next week, they’ll adjust their budgets and advertisements to reflect what they “raised” with their fundraising campaigns.
While students are using their math class as the basis for this project, they’re using and developing more than just their math skills. They’re exploring laws, communities, and budgets through online research, before developing plans, proposals, slogans, and campaign ads. This week, Mr. Greenamyer, a parent who heard about the project shared that he also has experience with playground design through his career and joined our students to share his expertise this week! Great work, Jr. High and teachers - we‘re excited to see your proposals!
