If you have ever watched children at play, you know they are captivated with building things and taking them apart. In other words, children are natural-born engineers. When children engineer in a school setting it helps them build science, math, and problem solving skills.
Based upon the students in your field experience classroom, revise your math lesson plan from Topic 2 to integrate engineering concepts. Select a grade-appropriate engineering standard using your state’s standards, or standards from the Next Generation Science Standards. Your lesson plan should be completed in its entirety, with a focus on:
- Incorporating developmentally-appropriate general engineering concepts into the instruction and instructional activities.
- Clearly identifying what you would do to support a student with exceptionalities (you may select and identify the student’s exceptionalities on the lesson plan).
