Scientists and Engineers Are INVENTIVE (Grades 3–5)

by: Donna Farland-Smith and Julie Thomas

In this lesson, students learn that scientists and engineers are inventive. They read about inventor William Kamkwamba in the book The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. After reading, they construct a windmill model and learn how wind is a source of energy. This selection highlights the practice of constructing explanations (science) and designing solutions (engineering), and it includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, and Index.
