Balls & Hoops: Pass-It-Back Relays
Students engage in outdoor relay activities to encourage teamwork, creative thinking, and development of motor skills. In this outdoor recreation lesson, students first line up, then brainstorm ways to move a ball from the front to the back of the line.
Pre-K - K Physical Education
Zigzag Jump Rope Relay
Fourth graders develop jump roping skills which include hand and foot coordination. In this health lesson, 4th graders practice good sportsmanship. Students cooperate with other classmates during this activity. Students learn how to develop strength in both their lungs and heart.
Communicating at work: Building a successful team
Students work in teams, participate in the "Lifeboat Game." Discussion following the game helps students process the activity to realize teamwork skills they used to facilitate meeting their game goal. Students identify and relate the five Basic Human Needs through role-play.

Functioning as a Team
High schoolers work as a team to build a freestanding bridge from newspapers and masking tape and analyze the effectiveness of their group. For this teamwork lesson, students view and summarize a video on Service Learning Projects. High schoolers discuss a list of behaviors that promote and inhibit teamwork and role play each.

Build Your Own Robot Arm
Engineers team up to design and construct an 18-inch-long robotic arm that can successfully pick up a paper cup. Each group is given the exact same set of materials, but it is up to them to decide what to use and how to use it. It is a straightforward, yet challenging plan for your physical science class.
3rd - 12th Technology & Engineering
Adaptive Device Design
After reading about how engineering has made adaptive devices possible for people with disabilities, pupils work in groups to discuss different devices to determine whether or not they are adaptive. They also disassemble a pair of eyeglasses in order to analyze the materials and design.

Waterproof that Roof!
Stop the raindrops from getting into the house! Eager engineers learn about roofing history and waterproofing by nanotechnology. They get into groups and work on designing a waterproof roof for a small model house. The accompanying handout provides space for planning and critical analysis questions for follow-up.

Life Vest Challenge
After reading about the history and science of personal floatation devices, patents, and intellectual property, engineering teams design a life vest for a can of soup. To evaluate which groups considered the need for waterproofing, hold a classroom challenge to find out how long each PFD will keep the can afloat!

Arduino Blink Challenge
Emerging engineers read about how Arduino software and how it can be used. Then they follow a nine-step tutorial to connect an Arduino board to a computer and put it to work! The objective is to code a program that will cause an LED to consistently turn on for five seconds, then turn off for two.
9th - 12th Science CCSS: Adaptable
With the use of a model rocket kit, aspiring aerospace engineers work cooperatively to construct and launch a rocket. A preparatory reading assignment is included, covering Newton's laws of motion and information about the first commercial spaceships, launched in 2011 and 2012.

Engineer a Dam
To begin the learning about dams, learners read (or are read to, depending on the age group) a passage about how dams work. Next, they work in groups to use the materials provided to build a small scale working dam. After the experience, each young engineer answers some reflection questions.
