PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great hands on unit for K-2 students that is aligned with ELA CCSS, and Next Generation Science Standards for Engineering & Design. Perfect for an OCEAN UNIT or END OF THE YEAR celebration activity!
Students will complete this 2 part activity to create and test different sand mixtures, then select the best one for building and then build the tallest sand structure they can, culminating with completing the ELA and Math activities. The idea is for students to see different combinations of sand, and to test the strength when building.
