In this inquiry activity, students will explore structures around their environment and pose questions related to form and function. They will use the technological problem-solving process to design and build a workable structure to investigate form and function concepts. They will relate their findings to established scientific facts and produce a scaled model of a structure, or the structure itself.
The students and teacher will go for a walk in the schoolyard or community, looking for different forms of energy (sun, wind, gas, electrical, food). This will be a shared experience that will become... read more
