Type of Resource



Grade: Kindergarten. Duration: 1 hour. Type: Website with a lesson plan, video, and other resources. This website is FULL of amazing resources giving Kindergarteners an intro to Engineering. It provides a video, a read-aloud, discussion questions, vocabulary. I love that it has the 5E learning cycle incorporated into the lesson plan!
