Engineer and Design an Apple Basket!

Make learning fun with this Apple STEM activity in which students design and create an Apple basket to hold as many Apples as possible! Perfect for Johnny Appleseed Day and for a Fall Party!

The Engineering Design Process:

Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. They follow the six step Engineering Design Process: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Experiment, Improve. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

Aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).

Includes:

• Teacher and Student Instructions
• Student Planning Pages
• Student Reflection Pages
• STEM Journal
• NGSS Standards

Material List:

• apples
• straws
• pipe cleaners
• paper plates
• hole punch
• scissors
• tape

ALIGNS TO NGSS

K-2-ETS1-2 Engineering Design

Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how

the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given

problem.

K-2-ETS1-3 Engineering Design

Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.

3-5-ETS1-2 Engineering Design

Generate and compare multiple solutions to a problem based on

how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the

problem.

3-5-ETS1-3 Engineering Design

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.

NGSS3-5-ETS1-2
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
NGSS3-5-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.
NGSS3-5-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.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-1
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-3
Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
