You have learned about the steps in the Engineering Design Process: 1.Watch the video about students designing a windmill (click to start). 2.How did the students in the video use the Engineering Design Process? Turn to a neighbor and share your ideas. 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Video Source: Teachers’ Domain Image Source: Museum of Science, Boston Click the picture to view the video on Safari Montage
Let’s look at the different simple machines that you can use in your toy. Simple machines will help your toy to move! Click on the pictures to research machines: A machine is anything that uses or changes energy. Machines help us do work. here here What are some of the machines you learned about in your research? Record your ideas here. here 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Simple Machines pulley lever wheels ramp
You can be an engineer! Mechanical engineers are people who design machines. Machines use energy to help people do work (or play!). Look at the toys designed by children in these videos (click to start). Think… 1.What simple machines do you see in these videos? 2.What kind of new toy could you design? 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: clipart.com Video Source: YouTube Click the pictures to watch the Safari Montage videos.
Think about the Engineering Design Process. Think about simple machines. Imagine a new object, system, or process that can be useful to people. 1. Brainstorm with a partner to imagine and plan a new toy. here here 2. Create your design process here.here 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next The Engineering Design Process Image Source: Museum of Science, Boston

BCPS Curriculum BCPS Curriculum Supplement for Grade 1 Science – Unit Title: “As the Weather Changes” Maryland State Curriculum Maryland State Curriculum Science, Grade 1, Standard 1.0 Skills and Processes Students will demonstrate the thinking and acting inherent in the practice of science. Topic A. Constructing Knowledge; Indicator 1. Raise questions about the world around them and be willing to seek answers to some of them by making careful observations and trying things out. Topic D. Technology; Indicator 1. Design and make things with simple tools and a variety of materials.; Indicator 2. Practice identifying the parts of things and how one part connects to and affects another. Common Core State Standards Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real-world situations, and further investigations. Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students 3.0: Use a variety of technologies for learning and collaboration. Time Frame: 2 – 3 50 minute periods Differentiation: Research resources are differentiated by reading level using silver/gold stars (basic/challenging) Cue students to use the closed-captioning feature in Brainpop, Jr., while viewing the “Simple Machines” video on slide 2. Direct students to use comprehension tools included in databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels, and embedded dictionaries. Learning Styles Learning StylesLearning Styles Learning Styles: Visual, auditory, kinesthetic, tactile, active, reflective, global, analytical Notes to the teacher: Mechanical Engineer Mechanical Engineer For teacher background knowledge, view the Safari Montage video “Mechanical Engineer” (running time ~ 1 minute).Mechanical Engineer Collaborate with your school’s Library Media Specialist to implement this research project. This Slam Dunk research project should be used in conjunction with the Grade 1 science unit “As the Weather Changes” (3 rd quarter). This Slam Dunk research project can be used to provide artifacts/data for PTD. Cheryl Madden Jamie McKenzie’s Slam Dunk Lesson moduleCheryl Madden Jamie McKenzie’s Slam Dunk Lesson module.
