This unit focuses on students’ approach to water and how it is a part of people’s lives. Teachers can observe students’ construction with manipulatives and scaffold their knowledge by posing problem-based learning opportunities. Students will be able to build, explore, test, and problem solve with different recycled materials, and use various manipulatives. Students will also communicate the importance of preserving and caring for the environment.
