This engineering activity is great for the students because it really got them thinking about ways to block bunnies from getting into Mr. McGreely's garden. This activity was designed for students to work together to build a model to prevent bunnies from getting into the vegetables.
Students were given objectives that they will complete when doing this engineering project. The objectives were outlined by starting the activity by brainstorming ideas to keep the bunnies out of the garden, the predicating which materials were the best, and then talking to their classmates about which ideas were the best to keep the bunnies out. The students were given an hour to complete the activity. There were many materials given to them to use that the students can choose from.
The teacher started the lesson by asking them if they knew what they wanted to be when they got older or if they wanted to be an engineer. They the teacher read the first part of a story called Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!. The students and teachers then began to brainstorm, started designing and constructing, evaluating the ideas that they came up with and finally coming together to discuss what they have created.
