You have been hired to work with a team to design and build a new toy! Your toy will be marketed across the nation this coming holiday season! This collaborative, hands-on, ELA and STEM-aligned activity fosters team-building, critical thinking, collaborative problem-solving, communication, and social skills. Engaging, fun, proactive learning for back-to-school, half-days, special days . . . or any day! Writing assignments, grading rubrics, and CCSS included!
Critical thinking is an important concept for our students to learn - and the sooner they begin thinking and learning about it, the sooner they will be able to use those skills when listening to others, watching television, and reading books and non-fiction texts.
