Unit of Instruction
I Am An Engineer!
Some young children grow up knowing an engineer. Most do not. Or, the engineers they know are different from them in gender, race, or other demographic characteristics. This unit extends children’s developmental skills with using Rokenbok and introduces them to the idea that everyone uses engineering every day. So, they (and their teachers) are already engineers.
