Week long Mini Unit on Inventors that is a PBL(Project Based Learning). This is a culminating unit week long project where students work in teams to create an invention of their design. They measure, use money, build, present and work cooperatively to create and original invention. The week is started off with a video from Ellen DeGeneres Kid Inventors and is followed up by actual inventing time.
Students provide recycled materials from home. Teacher provides hard hats(or asks parents to bring them in), worksheets and time to build. It is fun and my students have a BLAST with this unit. Perfect for Texas TEKS.
EVERY WORK PAGE IS IN SPANISH AND ENGLISH. Perfect for the Dual Language classroom.
