3. IGNITE and CULTIVATE student innovation by getting kids to engineer a new model for a space station, or new instrument to enable discovery of things unknown. Activity might require questions to direct research: What is the problem? What are possible solutions? What works/doesn't work? Remember to include: materials used; procedure; problems and solutions encountered; reflections of the process, the model and any other thoughts and observations during the process, labels and next steps.
4. ENGAGE critical thinking skills by getting kids to create puzzles of all types: crossword puzzles (regular, freeform, crosspatch), scrambled letters puzzles, matching puzzles, or word search puzzles using a variety of blank templates (see links below).
