Engineers have touched so much of the world around us! Kindergartners will learn just what an engineer can do, focusing on identifying technologies they have designed. Technologies are anything that has been designed to meet a need or a want. So many technologies that engineers have developed have solved the many problems we face each and every day.
We've started the year in Kindergarten learning from some of the best authors who have written about what engineers actually do! These books are Engineering Elephants, If I Were an Engineer, and Rosie Revere, Engineer! We're quickly learning that engineers have greatly influenced our lives, designing things that make our lives simpler, better, faster, etc. We're focusing on living/non-living things and natural/human made objects. We'll be drawing conclusions on which of these categories an engineer works with!
