|Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate and investigate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve an identified problem. (K-2.E.2)||Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to identify how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem. (6-8.E.2)
Analyze data from investigations to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success. (6-8.E.3)
