Student Objective: Students will construct a rubric and research, design, and construct a habitat for a class pet. Students will brainstorm problems with their first prototype and design and construct an improved habitat.
3-5.ETS1.1 Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time or cost. (build a habitat for classroom pet)
3-5.ETS1.2 Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem. (test design using criteria and come up with solutions to problem solve)
Essential Question: How can we design, engineer, and build a cost-effective habitat where our pet rock can thrive?
