Study Minerals and Erosion using real-world scenarios. Students explore the effects of erosion, weathering, and landslides on the earth’s surface. Their challenge is to code a robot to collect minerals that have surfaced in areas unsafe for humans to go. By introducing a real-world problem, students are emotionally invested in the subject. Throughout the unit students practice thinking programmatically. They learn how to create their own code as well as learn how to debug existing code. At the same time they are learning about erosion and identifying minerals. This unit easily fits into your schedule! Up to 60 minutes a day for 5-8 day.
Become a STEM classroom in just minutes a day!
Includes easy-to-follow lessons that require little prep time and no professional development training.
Utilizes the Engineering Design Process that connects “real world” and school work through engaging activities.
Provides flexibility for use in centers, classrooms, STEM labs, STEM camps, after school programs, and summer school.
Materials included are enough for 30 students working in 6 groups.
