Science and engineering don't always occur in a lab or a classroom. Sometimes they happen in our own backyards!
This resource explores the remarkable engineering of the termite. Using the simplest of materials, students will design the tallest mound possible.
Each lesson in the "STEM in Nature" series explores a different animal engineer. Though the different components of this resource may be used separately, together they cover all six elements of a STREAM activity. Students will:
* Explore real world examples of engineering in nature (Science)
* Use the internet to research information about the featured animal (Technology)
*Use reading comprehension to answer questions about the featured animal (Reading)
*Design a prototype to solve a problem or meet a challenge (Engineering and Art)
*Use measurement, operations, understanding of geometric shapes, etc. (Mathematics)
