Grade: 1 - Engineering 1

1.E.1
Pose questions, make observations, and obtain information about a situation people want to change. Use this data to define a simple problem that can be solved through the construction of a new or improved object or tool.

Cross Cutting Concepts
Structure and Function:
*The way an object is shaped or structured determines many of its properties and functions.

Stability and Change:
*For both designed and natural systems, conditions that affect stability and factors that control rates of change are critical elements to consider and understand.

Looking Back Looking Ahead
Identify a problem or need and create a plan to solve. (F.SC4.1) Identify a simple problem with the design of an object that reflects a need or a want. Include criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost. (3-5.E.1)

Construct and perform fair investigations in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved. (3-5.E.3)
