This engineering booklet takes the students through all the steps of design thinking to answer the engineering prompt:
Solve a human problem using what you know about animal and plant external parts.
This is the Next Generation Science Standard 1-LS1-1: Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plans and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.
The students will interview someone to find a need with balance and/or grabbing objects and then use what they know about animal and plant features to design a solution.
This products includes lesson plans.
****This activity booklet is part of a large Features and Functions STEAM unit that can be found in my store.****
