Students will read DK Series: A Bed for Winter. Students will be given one of the animals listed in the book: mouse, bear, rabbit, etc. Students have to construct a bed for their animal for the winter. Students will engage in engineering and problem solving to build a sturdy bed. Students will engage in collaborative work and self- assessment. This self-assessment provides as a checklist for the students as they work together to build their beds for winter. This checklist has some picture support to aid in emergent readers and English Language Learners.
