Tomorrow's engineers visit an intriguing website about inventions that have changed the way we live. Biographies of child inventors on the suggested website aren't easy to find, so make sure to find some stories to share in place of them. The lesson doesn't make the same impact without them. From here, youngsters imagine being inventors themselves. This would be a neat lesson to use at the beginning of an engineering class or a unit on technology.
How has automobile technology affected the United States and its citizens? After reading an introductory article, class members participate in a jigsaw activity designed to explore this question. After gathering information and filling out responses to the provided questions, pupils compose a five-paragraph essay using their research as evidence.
Flashback to the time just before the turn of the century. The industrial revolution was in full swing, but why? Investigate key innovations and inventions that made it all possible. Covered are things like, steel, steam, oil, railroads, cars, communication, and airplanes. Tip: Have learners investigate the impact of each invention.
Students create an invention. In this scientific technology instructional activity, students discuss inventors and how their inventions helped others. Students brainstorm ideas for inventions and their rationale behind it. In small teams, students construct models or drawings of their new invention.
Middle and high schoolers look at historical photos and analyze some of the changes brought about by the automobile revolution in Arkansas during the 1920's. The book, A Journey Through Arkansas: Historic U.S. Highway 67, is used for learners to get a glimpse into this time period. This two-day plan is filled with great ideas for your students; it should lead to a firmer understanding of how the introduction of the automobile changed the Arkansas landscape.
It wasn't like the American Industrial Revolution just happened overnight; or did it? Critically examine the inventors, inventions, investments, and tycoons that made the Industrial Revolution happen. Covered are over 50 years of railroads, oil booms, stock markets, and labor strikes.
Youngsters develop an understanding of how smog is produced, and how exhaust from automobiles is one of the major sources of smog. They explore the roles that engineers play in developing technologies that reduce smog, then work in teams to create an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. A fabulous lesson plan that is chock-full of terrific attachments such as, streamed video, websites, and worksheets that will all support student learning. I would highly recommend implementing this resource with your class.
Third graders explore the world of inventions by describing their impact on their own lives. In this technology lesson, 3rd graders practice writing descriptive paragraphs about different inventions that they find interesting Students share their opinions with the rest of the class.
Sixth graders examine inventions, such as spear points and bows and arrows, and discuss their importance in human cultural development. They compare these early inventions with modern ones and determine the impact of science and technology on society. In groups, or individually, they select contemporary items and write what they think future archeologists will know about the culture that used them.
Tenth graders think critically about how inventions and new technologies influence everyday life. They compare the benefits of inventions against the risks that they may bring. Students conduct interviews with peers and adults to allow them to showcase their knowledge on a poster to share with the class via a gallery-walk.
Students identify various inventions and their inventors. As a class, they compare and contrast the Industrial Age with the Information Age and determine the difference between inventions, adaptations and discoveries. They discuss how the invention of the computer is leading us into an even more deeper Information Age.
Students, assessing a variety of sources, explore the growth of inventions that were brought about by the Industrial Revolution. They analyze labor practices and philosophies within the history of the United States. A timeline is set in place to evaluate the evolution of America's production system from the Industrial Revolution through today.
Students develop an understanding of the effects of inventions past and present on society. In this inventions activity, students research inventions. Students develop inventions of their own and answer questions about their designs and how the invention will influence people.
