In 5th grade Exploring Technology, students begin to develop a basic understanding of the of technology through hands-on experiences. They will work in groups and as individuals to complete activities and experience technological processes that contribute to effective designs and solutions to technological problems. Students participate in design activities to understand how criteria, constraints, and processes affect designs. Students will brainstorm, visualize, model, construct, test, and refine designs to better understand the uses and impacts of technology. Students develop skills in communicating design information and reporting results.
In this course it is expected that students participate in all activities and have an open mind for new experiences.
This year 5th grade students will rotate through technology class for one week out of every three weeks.
