Product Description
This activity is a blast! Students will learn about assembly lines, the engineering design process, and how to build an effective team in an attempt to mass produce high-quality Valentine's Day cards. They will conduct three separate trials that use different production methods and they will graph and compare their results.

The package includes:
1. A concept review of the engineering design process, assembly lines, and tips for building an effective team.
2. A pre-activity practice worksheet that allows students to apply their knowledge to problems similar to those that they will encounter during the activity.
3. A materials list and a step-by-step procedure.
4. A template for the valentine that will be mass-produced and the cutouts that students will need to trace during card production.
5. A data sheet and a template for the graph of the results.
6. A "Results and Discussion" section with both reflection and critical thinking questions.
7. A list of the NGSS and ITEEA standards that apply to the activity.
8. A sample answer key.
9. A font agreement from Kevin Richey, creator of the "mostly mono" font used in the documents.

Here is the materials list so you know whether your budget allows for the activity:

-Plenty of cardstock in 6 different colors
-Scissors, glue sticks, and pens or markers for writing the messages
-Timer or stopwatch
-Boxes to collect accepted and rejected valentines

Enjoy my "Valentine Assembly Line" activity and please keep my store in mind for other hands-on STEM challenges!
