STEM Bins® and STEAM Bins are an ideal hands-on solution for early finishers, morning work, centers, fine motor practice, indoor recess, or positive reinforcement of behavior. They are also a creative and developmentally appropriate form of engineering for elementary students.
Listed materials for each STEM Bin are found in most elementary classrooms or can be borrowed from other teachers, and you may choose which materials that you feel are best for your learning environment. Additional STEM engineering tools and photos can be added to the EDITABLE STEM Bin Covers in the separate file. Inexpensive building materials for STEM Bins can be found at Dollar Tree, Walmart, Target party section, or Target Dollar Spot.
The management of your STEM Bins is completely up to you, as they can be used during multiple times of your day. “Challenge Yourself” cards are provided on Page 11 to take structures to the next level, allowing students to improve and enhance their structures.
