CREATING AN INVENTION BY IMPROVING ITS DESIGN
Choose a simple item you use often.
How would you improve upon its design?
You can use these starters to engage students as they enter class and get seated. This type of activity is sometimes referred to as bell work, or a bell ringer.
You can use these to spark an after-dinner discussion, a game night or an exploration.
Just nerd out with us.
