This option is faster than shadow boxes, but has the drawback of being in only two dimensions. Basically, you print out the Rescue Mission Planning packet and develop a good idea of what the inputs and outputs for each subsystem are. Then print out the Subsystem Posters Packet and place the posters on a bulletin board.
The students will then put inputs and outputs on each subsystem poster (they can glue on pictures if time allows) and, using push pins or similar attachments, connect the subsystem posters with yarn or ribbon of different colors.
