This unit is incorporated into our 5th Grade Project Lead The Way (PLTW) unit, Robotics, and my students are going to write an informational piece on how robots can help humans and society. Module One in PLTW is all about how robots can help in disasterous, dangerous and dirty situations.
Being able to create with the same process that designers and engineers use is one of the biggest learning super powers we can give our students. The steps are relatively simple to master and create a productive, growth-centered mindset in our learners.
