How Has Technology Changed Over Time? Start with a Research Project!
National Science Week is on its way, and it’s time to start planning for those lessons on invention and innovation. While it seems daunting to try to come up with lessons on this topic that are appropriate for younger students, it can be done! One way to do this is by having students initiate and complete their learning with structured research projects. That’s where this printable research project workbook comes in!
Science Week Plans for Studying the Evolution of Technology
The objective of this research project is to examine the evolution of technologies by comparing past technologies with their modern counterparts. Through this project, students will gain insights into how technological advancements have transformed various aspects of our lives. By analyzing the changes, students will develop a deeper understanding of the progress and impact of technology over time.
Using the graphic organizers and planning documents included, students will research an influential piece of technology and determine how it changed the industry it was designed for. They will also explore how that same technology has evolved over time and how it is used today. The project culminates with students creating a Technology Then and Now poster, highlighting technology’s overall changes and impacts on the industry.
