Semester 2 Unit: Obstacle Course Design Goal: Create a physically and mentally challenging obstacle course for younger students. Role: Designer Audience: 3-11 year olds, depending on which time period of child development you are focusing on Situation: Mr. Oni needs help designing an obstacle course for specific age groups Product: Physical obstacle course Standards: MS-ETS1-2 Engineering Design Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Key Concept: Systems Related Concepts: Ergonomics, Collaboration Global Context: Orientation in space and time Inquiry Questions: Factual: What are major milestones in child development? What are gross and fine motor skills? What is cognitive development? Conceptual: What should a good obstacle course accomplish? What makes an obstacle course fun for different age groups? Debatable: Can any age group attempt and complete an obstacle course?
