This is Part 1 of a 5 part series I am currently doing in class. The pacing overview is also included so you can see the upcoming units.
In the unit, students are given every school items (popsicle sticks, index cards, masking tape, etc) which they can "purchase" using a given budget. They work in teams to create a ULTIMATE STRUCTURE. They are going for either the tallest or the strongest structure. Really ambitious groups can go for both.
Included in this packet are:
An example calendar
Daily powerpoint to help keep you and your class on track
Rules and Procedures for project
Grading Sheet for project
Signage for the Project
Example Lesson Plans
If you are interested in the lesson plan and calendar they can be found by searching for Nautical themed teacher binder and planner pack by Ashley McKenzie on TPT.
