With the increased focus on engineering and design instruction, teachers are looking for more activities that incorporate these concepts into their curriculum. Many NEED activities lend themselves well to being modified for engineering and design challenges. In this sampler we have modified five of our lessons to demonstrate how seamlessly you can incorporate engineering and design into your science content lessons.
Each activity in this sampler is based on more cookbook-style activities already in print in other NEED curriculum guides, and each is referenced in the individual activity.
Each activity includes an introduction, suggested design and testing parameters, and “Teachers’ Cheats”, along with additional extension and enrichment opportunities.
Available for free PDF download, as well as e-publication.
A hands-on kit for the Light-A-Bulb Challenge is available (see photo) for $5.00 purchase. Each kit is enough for one small group and includes:
- 2 AA Batteries
- 1 mini LED bulb
- 1 flashlight bulb
- Jumbo paper clips
Additional materials are available at www.need.org/energysourcesmaterials.
