  1. Introduce students to Engineering Design with this high engagement and low prep lesson!In this engineering design activity, students are introduced to the engineering design cycle. They then complete the design cycle to complete a quick engineering challenge to see who can build the tallest tower us
  2. What features of a boat allow it to carry the most cargo? Let students explore with this ready-to-print engineering lesson!In this engineering design activity, students will create a boat design out of aluminum foil to try to hold the most pennies without sinking. After testing their first design, s
  3. Your students will LOVE watching with anticipation as you add more and more weight to structures that they have designed to figure out what kind of design elements makes a building sturdy. In this engineering design activity, students read about historic structures and then are given the task to bui
  4. Take a different approach to the tradition egg drop! In this engineering design activity, students will learn about how engineers create safety equipment for sports. They will then complete an engineering design challenge to create a landing pad that will keep an egg from cracking when dropped from
  5. What is more interesting than space, astronauts, and CANDY?In this project, students will learn about the engineering design cycle. They will learn about how astronauts must have specially designed food packages to use in space. They will go through the engineering design process to design, build, a

Overview and Extra Worksheets
  • Bundle Description
  • StandardsNEW

Save $$$ and get four extra worksheets when you buy the bundle! Help your students complete increasingly complex engineering activities with this high engagement, ready-to-print bundle!

All resources in the bundle are aligned to the NGSS Engineering Design Standards (3-5-ETS1 and MS-ETS1). You can use these resources as a mini engineering unit, as an introduction before students participate in an Engineering Fair, or resources can each be used as a standalone activities throughout the school year.

There are 5 full engineering design activities that take 1 to 3 days each, and also 4 additional worksheets that can be used as homework or extra practice. The activities are numbered 1 to 5, and start from most simple tasks and progress to most complex. The “Introduction to Engineering” lesson includes a very simple engineering activity, and the last lesson “M&M’s in Space” is much more complex project!

Each engineering activity includes Teacher Guides, Student Worksheets, and Answer Keys. Most materials needed for activities are household products and basic science lab materials.

Each document is a non-editable PDF. Clipart included in resource are from: Living Breathing and Loving Teaching and Instruct and Inspire

NGSSMS-ETS1-3
Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
NGSS3-5-ETS1-2
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
NGSSMS-ETS1-1
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
NGSS3-5-ETS1-1
Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
NGSS3-5-ETS1-3
Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
