PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson gives students an engaging and hands-on opportunity to engineer their own erosion prevention method. Use this lesson to take the concept of weathering and erosion and apply a real world problem and solution to it. This lesson follows the Engineering Design Process of Brainstorm, Plan, Build and Improve and is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards.

*This challenge should be conducted after the students have learned about Weathering and Erosion.

Included:
Engineering Design Challenge Teacher Instruction
Engineering Design Challenge Poster

NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS

2-ESS2-1- Compare multiple solutions designed to slow or prevent wind or water from changing the shape of the land.* [Clarification Statement: Examples of solutions could include different designs of dikes and windbreaks to hold back wind and water, and different designs for using shrubs, grass, and trees to hold back the land.]
