This PBL Unit is an entire set of lesson plans that uses the project-based teaching method. This project allows your students to become engineers by constructing bridges, overcoming bridge design flaws, and debating pros and cons of different types of bridges.
At the completion of this project, students will:
-understand how to compare/contrast
-understand attributes of 2D/3D shapes
-be able to create a composite shape
-complete a non-fiction narrative (realistic fiction)
The project integrates multiple subject areas including:
Math, Reading, Writing
This PBL Unit is a 55 page packet and includes:
-CCSS and SCAS (Standards)
-List of materials
-Easy to follow lesson plans that last approximately 10 days
-Reproducible student journals that follow daily lessons
This project was created with 1st graders in mind but can be easily adapted for Kindergarten through 3rd grade.
I would love to hear your feedback. Please look for my additional PBL projects soon.
