Students were give a folder of articles where they were to wrote a kid friendly definition for elements, mixtures and compounds.
Students then presented their groups finding and we choose the best kid friendly explain with details for this concepts.
Students were given a problem over separating mixtures. They chose materials from a provided list to solve the problem. Student conducted the experiment and presented their solutions to the class.
Student finding constant speed then they graphed the results on the whiteboards to present to the class.
Students doing constant acceleration and graphing again and we compared the difference.
Give a brief description of the how you arrived at your project idea:Include the following: content area, focal points of the activity, where in your curriculum you include the activity
Students have really enjoyed doing various engineering design briefs through out the school year.
The design briefs have been an excellent way for quickly assessing a students understanding and application of a science concept/activity.
Student will follow instruction on the design brief.
Student will be excited to do this project.
Design Summary Questions:
Students had to draw, explain and then demonstrate application of Newton’s three laws.
