With young students, a balance scale is a great way to physically demonstrate what equality looks like. Using one to balance two different colored cubes can be a great discussion starter for sharing Dr. King's famous dream. In this challenge, students will design, construct, and test their own balance scales using some simple, every day objects.
Included in this pack are:
-- Printable student challenge card
-- Teacher materials list
-- Pre-Activity guide
-- Engineering Design Process flow-chart for student record keeping
-- Self-assessment/Reflection page (differentiated for grades K-1 or 2-5)
-- Open-ended writing page for follow-up or related activities (differentiated for grades K-1 or 2-5)
