In this photo, my students are working with pipes and paper to create corrugated paper, like cardboard, in preparation for our experiments about strength.

Throughout our science unit on Structures and Materials, we’ve talked about the different properties of different material types, and their benefits and draw-backs (i.e. that wood would provide more support and stability than paper). We also watched a youtube video that helped us look at the importance of triangles in helping with support “What Makes Bridges so Strong”). (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVOnRPefcno)

I put together a lesson where students created sail cars, and we used a fan for power. Students studied the impact of area (and perimeter) of the sail on how far the sail would go. (Depending on grade level, this can cover math - area and perimiter calculation; science (experimentation, force-distance, measurement) engineering (sailcar design)

here's a link to the lesson plan
