This unit is about innovation, measurement, and anthropometrics, which is the study of the size of human form. Students will be using an engineering design process to design and develop an improved product that is used by the human hand. They will be studying the sizes of the human hand and using these measurements to estimate sizes of various objects. They will also be improving their measurement ability through various activities.
"It told me that not only adults can make innovations or innovate, kids can too!"(Student quote)
All units contain teacher background information, handouts, transparency masters, and a student packet.
Each unit is designed to integrate mathematics and science with technology and take 8 to 10 days.
