The package: "Lesson on: How Batteries Work" includes everything you will need to run the lesson.
- 5 Mission Assignments:
-Mission 1: Alkaline Battery
-Mission 2: Nickel Cadmium Battery
-Mission 3: Nickel Metal Hydride Battery
-Mission 4: Lithium Ion Battery
-Mission 5: Your Mission: Create a Battery Owner's Manual
-Sample work from one of the groups when I taught this lesson
Each group will receive their mission statement, and according to the statement, create an assignment on Bristol board or large chart paper that they will later present to the class. In my experience teaching this lesson, the completion of the assignment will take up a full class, and presentations will take up a second class.
The students do not have to do any research outside of their mission statements, which include a description of the kind of battery they will be presenting on (the Battery Owner's Manual for group 5 already has the DO's and DONT's listed for battery care).
Students will have to collaboratively sort of which information they would like to present, and which they would like to leave out.
The lesson is great in that, you can extend it for as many classes as you wish if you rotate the groups to complete a new mission statement every class and devote the second class for presentations.
Through rotating the groups, the package has the potential to cover a week of classes.
