Make Your Castle Strong
In this lesson, students will use their new engineering skills to build and test a castle wall, and then improve on the design to make it stronger. Then, students will move into a “focused” free build, where they create, test, and improve their own castle wall design.
Note: Students will work in teams of 2 to complete this lesson. Make sure to provide each team with a Construction Mat and the correct assortment of Engineering Materials as listed in the Teacher Lesson Plan.
