This task is geared toward helping the intermediate level student develop key science/engineering “thinking skills” that will help build the foundation for more complicated scientific learning. As new science standards are implemented, “engineering” plays a prominent role—even at the elementary level!
This lesson can be done in two or three class periods--3 if you if you wish to allow the students to go back and revisit their columns.
Supplies are readily available—white copy paper, paperclips, glue, and scissors!
Get creative and have fun!
