Title: Engineered Solution Dam Evaluation Journal and Presentation
Description: Students will create a Google Doc utilizing their school based account or the class created account provided by the teacher. Students will electronically journal their thinking throughout the process of the hands-on group science activity about designing and evaluating a dam to reduce the impact of a flood. Once the activity is complete, students will share their Google Doc with a peer or assigned group in order to discuss findings of the experiment and clarify any unclear statements claimed in his/her journaling. Students will compile journal entries to create a sequential writing appropriate to the task. Students will then create a presentation of their journaling with Google Slides, Prezi, Animoto or a similar electronic presentation tool. This unit was created as part of the ALEX Interdisciplinary Resource Development Summit.
