As students study the human body, they can include the different body systems as they build their Operation games. Made from a few household materials, a makey-makey kit and the Scratch website, students can create and play their Operation game.
Each team has a budget of $45 to spend to modify a cup into the ultimate predator. After predators are constructed, students battle to pop each others’ balloons. Whichever predator is able to survive is the apex predator.
After reading various versions of The Three Little Pigs, students will plan and design houses that could protect the little pigs from the Big Bad Wolf (a hair dryer).
In this lesson students engineer ramps and race monster trucks. Students estimate and measure distances traveled and then organize and visually represent this data in a graph.
In this lesson, students use their knowledge of sound energy to create a soundproof box to protect a secret code word! Students measure and graph decibels to determine how well their boxes omit sounds!
