Product Description
This unit is designed to lead students through the Next Generation Science Standards for 5th grade. This packet focuses on Space Systems: Stars and the Solar System and The Next Generation Science Standards:

3-5-ETS1-1. Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
Students will create a design plan for a racecar, which includes, design specifications, cost of materials table, reflection on design difficulties, experiment with the car and a product analysis.

The unit is purposefully written to give teachers the ability to introduce and change as they feel would be best for their teaching style and student ability, however, racing the cars down a ramp will work best.

The Science of Disney Imagineering: Design and Models Classroom Edition produced by Disney Educational Productions would be great to watch as an introduction to the design process.

A rubric for the racecar and experiment is provided as well.

*I'd love for you to share with your co-workers, teammates, and any other educators, but please be respectful and purchase the multiple licenses copy for half price. :)
