Fidgeting with STEAM

Kindergarten through second-graders working with STEAM teacher Denise Maynard at Hampton Street had the unique opportunity of creating their own fidget spinners. Prior to creating their spinner, the class discussed the components of a fidget spinner, including the importance of the bearings and how to balance the weight. Students were given recycled materials such as pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, bottle caps, tape, clay, paper clips and toilet paper rolls which they could use to create their spinners.
