Project Based Learning Activity: Water World, Save the Earth
In this PBL activity, students will create inventions that can be used to save the ocean or seas (or river and lakes around the globe).
This is the perfect PBL for Earth Month, science class, or any time you want to get your students thinking differently.
This packet will walk students through the steps of problem solving and creating an invention. Each page will build upon the previous one as they build and design.
-Brainstorm Problems: There are two pages of problems the world’s water is facing. Students must tell why these issues are problems.
-Picking a Topic: Students pick which specific topic they want to create an invention for.
-Design: Three separate pages for their invention. This includes different angles, specific parts, and special features.
-How it Works: Students write about how the invention works.
-Problem Solver: Two pages with reflection questions for students to answer about the invention.
As students work through each page, they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes based on information they learn. By the end, all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on the creator’s imagination, creativity, and knowledge base.
All pages can be geared towards multiple grade levels, although for some younger students the teacher may need to give more explicit instructions.
Students may choose to use multiple resources to complete each page. They might even choose to work with a partner, but you get final say on that.
