Reflection: Checks for Understanding Design Tech: Making A Lego Car - Section 5: Elaborate


I am asking the students to either reflect on how they adjust their car to allow it to move or allow it to reverse direction for two different reasons.  If their car didn't move, I am looking for an understanding that they need a stronger magnet because the car was too heavy.  If they are trying to reverse the direction of their car, I am looking to see them explain their understanding if repelling and attracting to revers directions.
