PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes three lesson plans covering 4-5 days and a student-ready PPT to guide you through the lessons step by step. "Communicate Like an Engineer" is a fantastic introduction to teamwork and communication from a real world perspective. I have used it many times as part of a larger Nature of Science unit, and my students are always highly engaged. They learn to cooperate and communicate effectively in a problem solving context, which adds tremendous value. Use these activities in the first few weeks of school to help build a community of learners that will pay off all year!
Additional Materials Needed: Legos (or similar connecting blocks), Newspaper, Masking Tape
