Can students as young as kindergarten through second grade really be engineers? You bet! Present your class with the exciting challenges in this book, all built to fold right into your current curriculum and tie to your themes and your calendar. Introduce students to Sandi`s simple five-step engineering design process. Then, as you guide them with simple questions, watch your budding engineers delight in designing their own unique drums and sailboats, kites and umbrellas, and so much more.
Use these hands-on, open-ended projects to:
- Take advantage of children`s natural curiosity
- Incorporate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts into your existing curriculum
- Develop creativity, collaboration, and problem solving--important 21st Century Skills
