"3...2...1..." BLAST OFF!!! Students in Room 28 are movers and thinkers. The Curiosity Rover does what the name says, it sparks curiosity. In science class our 4th grade learners begin to understand the parts of a circuit and how they work. Let's "spark" excitement for these curious leaners!
The student thinkers in Room 28 are wise beyond their years.
Their natural curiosity has them researching the rover and what types of data it is collecting for NASA. This natural curiosity can then be used to spark other types of science learning. It is my hope to take these kits and use the already developed excitement and apply this to our unit on electricity and circuits.
This "Little Bit" Space Kit provides a hands on experience to build a space model of the Curiosity Rover. This model will be powered by a mini circuit system that these mini 4th grade scientists will build themselves. The circuit system allows students to see up-close how a simple circuit and remote system is built and then used to power a small rover.
Students of Room 28 are obsessed with learning and the Mars Curiosity Rover!!
This hands-on building experience would create a super special science learning memory that would last a lifetime! This space science lesson will inspire each and every student and create a learning memory that will last a life time!
