What's Shaking? Three-Lesson Unit

Your young architects use the Internet to research tall structures or sky scrapers to help in the design of their scale drawings. This is instructional activity one of three in which learners design, build, and test model skyscrapers for seismic safety. Ways to differentiate instruction are included. Unfortunately, the introduction handout is not. A rubric for "research and design" really assesses collaborative group participation.

Lesson Planet has been fantastic!! I have been able to look at many different lessons based on my chosen theme and then just take the pieces I like and make it my own. It makes life so much easier and I have gleaned some great ideas. Thank you!!
