This lesson was created to give students an engaging and inventive way to apply their understanding of Material Properties. In these Engineering Challenges, the students will create an Invention to solve a problem by working collaboratively through the Engineering Design Process. They will have the opportunity to apply Physical Science content and Engineering Practices from the Next Generation Science Standards!

2-PS-1 Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
2-PS-2 Analyze data obtained from testing different materials
to determine which materials have the properties that are best
suited for an intended purpose.
K-2-ETS1-1 Ask questions, make observations, and gather
information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
K-2-ETS1-2 Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
