*Step by Step Directions
*Blank Student Copies
The following topics are covered:
*Vocabulary: technology, bioengineering, prototype, assistive & adaptive technology, intended benefits, unintended consequences, independent &dependent variable, constants, control, bias, and experimental error
*Steps with examples and colored flow chart
*Two labs: Paper Towel and Moon Landing Rover
*Two study guides aligned with two tests aligned with TN state standards in my store
*Lab Tools: pictures and descriptions
I used this book to accompany my inquiry (scientific method) and engineering design unit. Check out my inquiry and engineering design tests in my store. They are a free download. I created this book to align with those tests which aligns with TN state standards. Most of the questions on the exams have been pulled from sample TCAP items.
This unit takes approximately 4-6 weeks. We spend 1-2 days cutting and gluing all of the pages at the beginning of the unit. We complete the individual pages as we progress through the unit.
You can glue these pages into an Interactive Science Notebook (ISN) or make a small flipbook out of construction paper. You would need two pieces of construction paper, folded in half landscape. Staple them in the middle. If you use a flipbook, you will need to use the back cover as well.
I do not always give students the information to put underneath some of the flaps, especially if they are asking them to write definitions or summaries of information. However, all of the answers and tabs are complete for you to choose how you want to deliver the lesson or content.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aligned with the following standards:
Design a simple experimental procedure with an identified control and appropriate variables.
Select tools and procedures needed to conduct a moderately complex experiment.
Interpret and translate data in a table, graph, or diagram.
Draw a conclusion that establishes a cause and effect relationship supported by evidence.
Identify a faulty interpretation of data that is due to bias or experimental error.
Identify the tools and procedures needed to test the design features of a prototype.
Evaluate a protocol to determine if the engineering design process was successfully applied.
Distinguish between the intended benefits and the unintended consequences of a new technology.
Differentiate between adaptive and assistive engineered products (e.g., good, biofuels, medicines, integrated pest management).
