We are all affected by packaging – from the mail-order item that arrived broken to the flashy packaging in stores. With this guide, students learn about creating tessellations, evaluating material strength and performance, converting two-dimensional drawings to three dimensions, designing according to specifications, reducing waste in packaging, and more.
The Packaging Design Teacher’s Guide contains ITEEA standards, CCSS Math, and NGSS addressed; teacher and student instructions for a variety of math, science, and technology activities; pretests and posttests; resource pages; and links to video resources. Contains separate activities for middle school and high school students as well as links to career information and applications of the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity).
Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the Packaging Design – Getting Started Package as well as other tools and materials. Items needed for all activities are listed in the teacher guide.
