Integrate STEM and literacy with picture books and engineering! This package integrates the picture book The Raft by Jim LaMarche with engineering rafts. This package includes engineering design implementation ideas, the engineering design process reference page, an engineering design card for student groups, and student planning and reflection pages. Students will have a blast designing their rafts! This engineering challenge activity is not limited to use just with the picture book; it can be used entirely separately from the book. This design challenge can be used during a physical sciences unit and/or as part of a literature study!
Thanks for viewing!
