Item description

Add structure and assessment to your fun Rube Goldberg engineering project during a forces/motion and simple machines unit discussing the change in kinetic energy as it is transferred from one object to another. During all of the designing excitement it can be easy for the students to lose their focus so I have created a more structured approach to the engineering process. 

The students start out with a brainstorming session, that includes a rubric, and plan, plan, plan. As they work their way through building the project they fill out daily progress reports plus I have included rubrics for the teacher to use to assess the progress of each student each day. At the end of the project the students have a self-assessment form to fill out and there is a final grading rubric

*Teacher notes

*Rube Goldberg project directions

*Brainstorming questions

*Brainstorming session rubric

*Daily Journal cards

*Daily project assessment cards

*Organizational pages for the students to include their sketches and descriptions

*Self assessment for students


*Final Rube Goldberg assessment rubric
