Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Adrift in a Sea of Plastic

The Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are awash in plastic. The four lessons in the “Adrift in a Sea of Plastic” module challenge young environmentalists to design a solution to eliminating these plastic trash islands. After researching causes...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### STEM Ed Hub: Design Resources

Engineering design-based activities make learning science fun. Young engineers design dams, lifeguard chairs, musical instruments, candy bags, and much more. They also use measurement skills to solve the mystery of the missing pin. Each...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### TeachEngineering: Floaters and Sinkers

Why do some objects sink while others float? That’s the question young engineers tackle in a unit module of two lessons and three activities. With some help from Archimedes (and his principle) and the principle of buoyancy, scholars...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Global Grover: Get To School

There are so many way to get to school. Grover shows us how children get to school all over the world. This would be a good clip to show as an introduction to a lesson on compare and contrast, transportation, or global awareness.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### TinkerCAD: Introduction to 3D Printing

Steer young minds to build better boats. Future engineers first spend a few days exploring the TinkerCAD software and completing some embedded lessons. They then design sea crafts with buoyancy in mind and print them using a 3-D printer.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Bumper Boat Bash

Speed through a bumper boat course to practice making nouns plural. Scholars read 26 plural nouns and choose the correct form out of three to advance their boat closer to the finish line.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Everyday Engineering: Foil Boats

Keep one's dream of becoming an engineer afloat. Learners apply the engineering design process to build a boat out of aluminum foil. They start with a square boat, then consider whether boats of different shapes would be able to hold...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paddle Boat

Harness the power of rubber bands of all things. A hands-on activity has scholars design and build paddle boats. They learn how the elastic potential energy of rubber bands can be converted to the kinetic energy associated with motion.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Keep Your Boat Afloat

Use whatever material floats your boat. Working in groups, scholars decide on a type of metal and a type of coating to use for building a boat. They test their creations by leaving their boats in a pool of water for several days before...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### What Was So Special About Viking Ships?

Viking Longships could go where few ships had gone before. Due to their unique constructions, the wooden ships could navigate shallow waters, brave the rough Atlantic and North Seas, and even rivers and fjords. Find out what was so...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Slow Boat Design

Don't be a drag. Learners work in groups to design boats that move slowly. The provided reason for the activity is that a fish caught on a fishing reel is pulling the boat, causing it to move too fast. The STEM activity teaches the class...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Buoyant Boats

Eureka! Using the clay boats made in the previous lesson, learners investigate the idea of buoyancy and water displacement to finish the last installment of five in a Floaters and Sinkers unit. Their observations during the activity...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Clay Boats

Clay itself sinks, but clay boats float. Why? Young engineers build clay boats to learn about buoyancy. They test the weight the boats can hold using washers and then tweak their designs to make improvements, following the engineering...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paddle Power

Potentially get all the way across the water. The fourth of five design challenges asks pupils to develop a plan for a paddle-powered boat that will store its energy. Given a limited number of supplies, the class members design, build,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Watercraft

Whatever floats your boat—with some additional weight. The first activity in a five-part series challenges pupils to design a boat to hold pennies. Using the design process, learners design, build, and test their boats, making sure they...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Airboats

Don't let the resource blow you away. Scholars build airboats from basic materials and collect data on how far the boats move. They refine their designs taking Newton's laws into consideration.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Vector Multiplied by a Scalar: Boat Race

Find the right number of vectors to get to the finish line. Using a boat race scenario, pupils add multiples of the same vector together. The scholars use scalar multiplication to speed up the boats in an exciting race to the finish.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Boat Building Challenge

Scholars build a boat using an assortment of materials such as foam plates, aluminum foil, and skewers, then test its buoyancy with pennies. Challenge boat builders to construct the strongest or fastest boat in a healthy competition with...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Float a Boat

Build a floating vessel capable of carrying cargo. Groups create a vessel that floats and can carry at least 10 pennies to model a mass transit system. After learning about buoyancy, density, and energy, they redesign their vessels in...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Introduction to Sailboats

The left part of the boat is called what? An informative instructional activity and accompanying slideshow presentation introduce middle schoolers to the terminology and parts associated with a sailboat.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Transport Song

Planes, trains, cars, feet, boats, buses, and bikes. Sing along with a music video and watch hand-drawn animation that highlights modes of transportation.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Transportation Word Cards

Beep beep! Zoom! Honk honk! Explore the world of transportation with a set of transportation picture word cards. Fifteen cards show trucks, planes, trains, boats, and many more types of transportation, complete with pictures and names.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Corruption, Wealth and Beauty: The History of the Venetian Gondola

How did the Venetian gondola get its distinctive look? Using this fantastic animated video, your class will be amazed to see how a seemingly simple construction can illustrate so much about a particular culture and historical time period.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Taking the Boat to Manaus

Fifth graders apply the concepts they know regarding mass, volume and density in the previous activities to design a boat. Student teams must make a boat which can travel the waters of the Amazon Rainforest. Each group makes a...
