This activity (which includes an editable version!) goes along with the book Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty. After reading the book with the class, this activity guides students through discussing the book and brainstorming their own creative/inventive solutions to problems they see in the classroom, school, and community! This is a GREAT jumping off point for many students for Genius Hour!
This is a wonderful activity for you to use before starting Genius Hour!
