DAY 4 (45 MINUTES) After gathering information and discussing within groups, students should make final decisions for their own classrooms. Students need to draw schematics for the classroom and include the calculation of cost for each component of the room. This should all be recorded in the journal. They should also calculate the total area of desk space (by calculating the area of their chosen desk using the measurements found online and multiplying by the total number of desks). After calculating total desk space, they should find total open space in the classroom by the following formula (Open Area = Total Floor Area – Desk Space – Student Space) where student space is found by multiplying the space one seated student takes up by the total number of students.

For example, there are many available video clips that show previous egg drop projects online. Some students may already know what the egg drop project is, but others may not. Students who do not know what the egg drop project is can imagine a big picture in their heads to plan what they are going to do. Furthermore, online games including parachutes can stimulate students’ interest and spark ideas on parachute shapes and areas/sizes. The teacher should explain and review prior knowledge even though students have already covered that topic.
