Subject: English Language Arts (3), or Mathematics (3)
Title: Dam Engineering
Description: In Math, students will draw a t-chart to represent dam and flood data obtained from their reading resource. Students will select the information they wish to use from the reading resource (their opinions). Students will then use rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch to measure lengths and construct a scale model of their own dam, which they can later construct in Science. Students will represent data in a graph and use measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Students will test their scale dams and make changes as needed.  This unit was created as part of the ALEX Interdisciplinary Resource Development Summit.
