This SCOOT game can also be used as warm up task cards for your STEM/STEAM lessons or classroom Maker Space. “Invention SCOOT” is a fun and motivating way to brainstorm ideas for inventing.
The engineering design process is a core, interwoven focus in the NGSS ( new framework for K-12 science education). Students need to consider how the discoveries of science have been made as well as learn the facts of science. By formulating ideas and testing their usefulness, students begin to engage in the authentic work of scientists and engineers. This SCOOT game should be very useful to your students in getting that process started.

The rules are just like your usual Scoot games, with 2 longer drawing activities added at the end. There are 28 question cards in all. Break cards are also provided, giving you a way to adjust the number of cards used for fewer or more students. There are blank cards provided as well for you to add some questions unique to your unit of study.
As no advance preparation is needed other than preparing the cards one time, this game also makes an excellent addition to your substitute folder or tub.
There is no answer key as the questions are open-ended, and student responses will vary.
I hope you will enjoy using this version of SCOOT to focus on Science Standards in your learning community!
