Fourth Grade with Ms. Gonzalez

Exploring STEM Education


I am excited to be your student's new Science Technology Engineering and Math teacher! My goal is to incorporate language arts into a fun, inquiry based science learning environment.

What our STEM class looks like

Each week, I aim to achieve the following goals...
  1. Have students investigate and make sense of the natural world by using hands on and resource based skills
  2. Maximize Science and Language Arts comprehension overlap
  3. Utilize technology to the fullest
  4. Practice the 4 differentiated modalities of learning Do-It, Talk-It, Read-It and Write-It

This class will follow this general weekly model


  • Students are introduced to our weekly experiment/project and begin research


  • Students complete all the necessary preparations for the experiment/project to follow including summaries of procedures, materials and safety


  • Students conduct experiment/project and record all that has happened in their notebooks


  • Students begin analyzing results and observations as a prelude to discussion. These things are recorded on their tablets.
  • Students begin rough drafts


  • Students finish/submit final draft on the topic that was followed in the project/experiment
