A great STEM project! Simulate what real engineers do!
This 77 page unit is a different take on the more traditional Inventors unit. It takes kids through the Engineering Design Process as they complete a Whatchamacallit Workshop and create an invention. It teaches them about patents and helps them address inventing as a way to solve problems. Engage your students with a simple machine sorting game, a Talk Show presentation, and other fun activities included in the bundle! It is a great supplemental resource to add to any engineering unit or simple machines unit.
