PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Learning the Engineering Design Process includes a variety of hands-on lessons to help students understand how engineers work and encourage record keeping in project based learning.

In these lessons, students are provided with a short matching activity to learn the vocabulary words associated with the Engineering Design Process. A printable template for the Engineering Design Process lets individuals or teams plan their project and follow the steps as the project progresses. Another version of the template gives hints about what students do at each step, which is perfect for differentiation. These can be used with any classroom project, but the lesson includes 12 task cards with different engineering scenarios that are great for students to use to brainstorm and plan a solution. Also included is a sample lesson with rubric for use with the cards.

A PowerPoint presentation of the Engineering Design Process is included with the lesson to introduce the concept to the class prior to starting the lessons, as well as links to other resources to enrich the learning experience.

Files Included with this Lesson
• Teacher Notes and Resources
• PowerPoint presentation
• Vocabulary Matching Activity (with answer key)
• Engineering Design Process printable template (includes version with hints)
• Student Expectations, Project Instructions and Rubric
• Engineering Design Process scenario cards (12) includes blanks for customization

I've used this primarily with 8th graders, but it would work well for grades 5-9. I hope your students enjoy!
