This fully editable, Engineering Career Research Notebook allows students to explore 15 different engineering careers. Teachers digitally send students the page(s) they need for the lesson via Google Drive (or other file sharing) or through a LMS such as Google Classroom or Edmodo. Students then add the specific career sheet to their file (digital notebook) and complete, following the teacher’s instructions. Individual files for each career, as well as the full MS PowerPoint file will all 15 careers are included for convenience.
These research activities work well to use over several days (per career) as a warm up at the start of class, or can be used as an introduction to activities related to the specific engineering career.
This activity was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary or high school as well.
This lesson is great for distance learning/remote learning. You can upload it to your school’s learning management system (Google Classroom, Edmodo, Canvas, etc.) or share with students via Google Drive.
