Product Description
This is a great partner experiment that encourages creative thinking and problem solving. Students use a variety of materials to build two hanging baskets, and then test their structures using a hanging scale. They must plan and execute a design with a partner, predict how much weight, in grams, each basket will hold before breaking, and test their designs. They also learn to use standard measuring tools to measure mass and discuss properties of materials. Students consider whether materials are natural or synthetic, flexible, waterproof, strong, transparent, and absorbent. They get practice asking questions, making predictions, making observations, and comparing actual outcomes to their predictions. This is a huge classroom hit, and young engineers often ask for opportunities to redesign and try again!

In this product you will receive:
- a list of materials
- step by step instructions for how to prepare and conduct the experiment
- real photos accompanying the instructions to provide clarity
- printable forms for reflection afterwards
