TEACHER NOTE: Day 1 - This would be considered the Research stage of the EDM. Inform students that they are in the Research stage, and have them follow your lead using the Gradual Release Model.
TEACHER NOTE: Day 2 – It is time to start designing possible solutions. Inform students that they are in the Design stage so that they can reference back to their Research stage when formulating a design.
TEACHER NOTE: Day 3 – Creation time! Inform students that they are in the Create stage so that they can reference back to what they learned from the Research and Design stages when constructing their aircraft.
TEACHER NOTE: Day 4 – Test Day. Inform students that they are in the Test stage, and get ready for the Gremlin to Fly! Prepare the students mentally. Tell them that it does not matter how their product performs; all that matters is that they understand the process that it took to get to this stage.
