I think that students would gain so much from this experience and that the students would stay engaged and excited throughout the process.

Connecting science subjects through literacy and math is one of the easiest ways to deal with this problem. Additionally, I liked the ideas of using centers and group work to allow them to dive deeper within a time constraint.
