MEKONG RIVER STUDY PART 1 - LIFE ON AND AROUND THE CAI BE PORT IN VIETNAM

This unit has a focus on life around the port of Cai Be - Vietnam. This settlement depends on the water within the Mekong system.

It is a destination for tourist companies bringing visitors from Ho Chi Minh City. Others reach the destination by taking side excursions off Mekong River Cruises. Take your students on a boat ride through the port. Find out how one small company uses the resources from the Mekong floodplain. Venture into the side channel and see the larger processing factories. The attachments provide an opportunity to distribute hard copies.

STEAM Thinking - Analyzing Bridges

STEAM Thinking - Analyzing Bridges

Note: Some of my products have some “out there” ideas. Make sure to look at the preview before purchasing. Everyone's classroom is unique and while these lessons work within my classroom, that may not be the case in another’s room. "You're begging me for a brand new start, Trying to mend a bridge that's been blown apart, But you know you never built it dad." (Bridge by Queensryche) As with any teacher, I’m always looking to create new and innovative ways to reach my students, grasp their attention and motivate them in new and meaningful ways. One manner in which I have had great success in reaching my teenagers of the digital age are my video game and writing creations. My newest creation combines a multitude of thinking and writing activities, inspired by the wonderful video game Bridge Constructor, created by the phenomenal game developer, Headup Games. This guide allows the students to think on high levels, as they will need to analyze mistakes made in my bridge designs, while proposing their own structural idea. The students will also review concepts relative to basic components of a bridge, along with Newton’s Laws of Motion. If one chooses to take this constructive journey, they may find it helpful to follow how I use this with my classes. Review Newton’s Laws of Motion. Give the students a printout of the basic bridge parts and forces/loads. Once you’ve given/reviewed the above basics, you can following the format below: Watch my poor bridge design video Complete the “Defining the Problem” page Complete the Visualize/Create page Watch my second bridge design video and complete the Evaluation page Complete the Analyze/Refine writing prompt Complete the Newton’s Laws page (the first bridge has been started done for you) Complete the bridge parts labels page ***Continue this process through each of the 8 bridges → Included in the Guide 3 Terms of Use 4 Core Standards 5 About the Guide 6 Recommendations for Teaching 7 Newton’s Laws of Motion 8 - 9 Bridge Basics 10 Bridge Components 11 - 17 Bridge 1 - West to East 18 - 24 Bridge 2 - The Valley 25 - 31 Bridge 3 - Really Big Valley 32 - 38 Bridge 4 - Over Troubled Water 39 - 45 Bridge 5 - Canyon Run 46 - 52 Bridge 6 - City to City 53 - 59 Bridge 7 - Insanity Ridge 60 - 66 Bridge 8 - Without a Paddle 67 - 76 Differentiation Writing Prompt - Bridge 77 References
