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. Students will read a story, identify the problem, and conduct an experiment to solve the problem. They will also determine and explain if the experiment was a sample of a "fair test". This will follow the process of the scientific method.
