Structure and Function: Exploring Design
This is the first of three modules kindergarten will complete this year. This module will take place every day during the students' science time from Oct.28-Nov. 22.
Students will be integrating science with technology, engineering, math, and language arts. They will also be using the Innovator Skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving throughout this module.
Students engage in learning science and engineering practices that include using a design process to solve a problem. They explore how engineers use problem-solving as they design innovations and inventions. Students apply their understanding of the design process as they use available materials to design, build, and test structures including a model of a house and a painting tool.
