Inventing and Presenting Unit 2: Effective Speeches and Building the Invention
In this culminating interdisciplinary unit, students use what they have learned about experimentation and the scientific method, critical thinking, clear writing, and effective speaking. Students read about inventors, propose inventions to solve problems they have identified, and build and test their inventions. They record and graph data and create visuals to share that data. In addition, students study famous speeches to identify the elements of effective speaking, and they propose in writing an appropriate scenario for sharing the results of their experimentation. Each student delivers a speech in a large-group setting.
