This mini unit includes activities for literacy, history, and engineering. Students will read or listen to the book Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty. Then, students will analyze the character of Rosie, practice story vocabulary, write a commercial advertising one of Rosie's inventions, and design an invention of their own.
Beyond the book, students can go online to a link included in this packet to complete a web quest about the history of Rosie the Riveter, What is Engineering, and following online directions to build a flying contraption. I have also included several sites that offer engineering games online for students.
