Need a quality two or three day lesson to engage boys in your classroom? Students in my class LOVE this lesson exploring topics of our future, including drone delivery. Students research a high-interest and engaging topic of Amazon's new Prime Air delivery program, which delivers packages by drones. They then brainstorm a series of questions, create a positive and negative aspects of drones T-chart, and finally choose whether or not they are FOR or AGAINST the development of the program, according to opinions formed from research. Students explore topics of convenience versus shopping local, discuss the safety aspects of drones, and reflect on technological advances of their lifetime. These pre-made materials (3 pages worth), help you and your students walk through the process of forming a strong opinion about the future of drones.
Below is an excellent article also used by my students to learn more about drones.
