Design and Build a Cruise Ship - STEM and Engineering Group Project

Design and Build a Cruise Ship - STEM and Engineering Group Project

This project lets students learn about the engineering and design of ocean liners and cruise ships as they research and design one with their team. After introducing the lesson with a short video (link included in resources), students work with their team to research information about the design and engineering involved in ship building from early times, including the Titanic, through the modern cruise ships of today. Then, they brainstorm together to determine what features they would include in their own “ship of dreams”. Next, they plan their design and create their own modern cruise ship to scale in Sketchup (a free CAD software program, download available at: https://www.sketchup.com/download ). Finally, they build a model of their ship using recycled materials, following the Engineering Design Process with their team. After completing their ship, students present their project to the class and explain their design choices. Finally, students reflect on and summarize their learning with short answers to questions about the experience and what they learned. This lesson was created for 7th and 8th grade, but could also be used successfully in upper elementary grades or high school as well. Files included: • Teacher & Student Resources • Team Sign Up Sheet • Team Planning Sheet • Ship Engineering & Design Research Project – Student Questions and Answer Key (editable digital and print versions) • Ship Design in Sketchup Project - Student Instructions, Expectations and Grading Rubric • Ship Building Project – Student Instructions, Expectations and Grading Rubric • Engineering Design Process Planning Sheet (editable digital and print versions) • Reflection Questions (editable digital and print versions)

Daily Living Skills-College and Career Workbooks Bundle Pack

Here is a cost-saving bundle pack to help walk your students through the skills needed to manage a career or post-secondary education. WHO AM I? COLLEGE AND CAREER—This book allows students to examine their IEP’s, advocate for themselves, analyze their learning styles and explore job aptitude. (Pgs. 44) GETTING A PAYCHECK—Students explore time sheets, gross and net pay, types of deductions, employer expectations, and budgeting. (Pgs. 60) TIME MANAGEMENT—Learn what kind of time manager they are, why they procrastinate, methods to overcome, prioritizing, how to stop worrying and more. (Pgs. 53) MANAGING STRESS—Learn the difference between good/bad stress, the benefits of good stress, four major methods of coping with “bad” stress, 50 ways to de-stress and more. (Pgs. 58) DRESS FOR SUCCESS—Looks at basic hygiene, ideas on bathroom organization, hints on organizing time/supplies for easy dressing, (also business attire and “appropriate” dress), clothes storage, hanger use, etc.—(Pgs. 41) TRANSPORTATION—You can’t have a job if you can’t get to it. Learn about the highway grid and finding your way, public bus and train services, how to study for a driver’s license, bicycle safety, police etiquette, road rage and emergency road equipment. (Pgs. 46) Like all Daily Living Skills workbooks, this series is written on a high third/low fourth grade level and targeted to the mild-to-moderate population (although, you’ll see in the ratings, many teachers of students with moderate-to-severe disabilities have used the program successfully.) All vocabulary is defined immediately in context so students build confidence in the information. Pages are light and airy with lots of bullet-points and pictures, and are set with a tone that is friendly, yet respects the sensibilities of this age group. Every book contains an answer key and Parent Letter explaining what transition skills you are addressing along with suggestions for parent follow-up at home in compliance with federal mandates. Lessons can easily be used in a “buy today/use today” fashion with no training and little preparation. Or, if you are a newer teacher or new to special education, the DAILY LIVING SKILLS TEACHERS MANUAL gives information on classroom organization and program set-up along with Indicator 13 support and a variety of written ITP goals for each workbook. (You do not need to buy the Teacher’s Manual—it is offered at the request of some teachers.) Like all the other bundle packs, you can save 10% or more by purchasing books in bundles. If you are unfamiliar with the series, please download our free sample, "Doing Laundry" on this site to see the format and tone used in all the books in this series or preview pages on the individual titles of each book which are also offered on this site.
