Description

This is a comprehensive unit for teaching the Engineering and Design Process to upper elementary and middle school students. I have recently modified this product to make it work for distance learning! This product includes the following components:

•Introduction to the Engineering and Design Process (Teacher Slides: PowerPoint and Google)

•10 hands-on STEM activities that demonstrate the Engineering and Design Process:

*Aluminum foil boat

*Marshmallow spaghetti tower

*Marble run

*Straw bridge

*Gumdrop tower

*Marshmallow shooter

*Balloon-powered car

*Popsicle stick bridge

*Marshmallow catapult

*Index card tower

•Student Notebook to record all activities (3 VERSIONS: Print-and-Go, Editable Google Slides, and Fill-In Google Slides)

•Engineering and Design Process Rubric (Print-and-go, Editable Google Slides versions)

•Teacher’s guide with step-by-step directions and materials lists for all activities

•Editable supply list for making distance learning kits

I hope you enjoy this product and if you have any questions, please feel free to email me. I'm going to add photos of my distance learning kits as soon as they are assembled! :)

NGSSMS-ETS1-3
Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
NGSSMS-ETS1-1
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
NGSSMS-ETS1-4
Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
NGSSMS-ETS1-2
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
