Technology, CTE and Engineering classes are gaining in popularity at the middle school level. This fun exploration of Architecture is perfect for grades 6-8 to learn history, design and explore careers in this field through a variety of computer based projects culminating in the CAD design of a "Tiny House". https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Exploring-Architecture-Design-a-Tiny-House-1858793
Teaching students to use the basic engineering design process gives them tools to become independent problem solvers! Use this bright visual as a poster and/or handout for your young engineers. Great to use with STEM challenges! There will be more STEM resources to come.
If children are “engineering” their very own original designs, then they are doing the “E” in STEM. It’s the application of their prior knowledge in science, mathematics, and utilization of technology that they apply in order to create! All children are natural “STEMists!” #STEM #science #EngineeringDesignProcess
