Reflection: Real World Applications Comparing Speed and Distance - Section 4: Wrap Up


Teaching this lesson was very interesting. The students did not seem very interested in the steps of the Design Process. In fact, as I was teaching this lesson, I began to think how beneficial it would have been if I had broken the steps of the process down into different lessons. Therefore, I could have spent more time teaching each step, while making learning about each step a little more interesting. However, the students were very interested in Rube Goldberg and his inventions. In fact, the students were eager to make an invention towards the end of the lesson using the Elementary Engineering Design Process.
