Technology/Engineering, Grades 3-5
Additional Ideas for Developing Investigations and Learning Experiences and Suggested Extensions to Learning in Technology/Engineering are in Appendix III.
Broad Concept: Engineering design requires creative thinking and strategies to solve practical problems generated by needs and wants.
|2.1 ||Identify a problem that reflects the need for shelter, storage, or convenience.|
|2.2 ||Describe different ways in which a problem can be represented, e.g., sketches, diagrams, graphic organizers, and lists.|
|2.3 ||Identify relevant design features (e.g., size, shape, weight) for building a prototype of a solution to a given problem.|
|2.4 ||Compare natural systems with mechanical systems that are designed to serve similar purposes, e.g., a bird's wings as compared to an airplane's wings.|
