Third Grade: Design Thinking/Making Caddie Project-Week 1
This great idea comes straight from our third grade teachers. Starting with a box of various items (pencils, pens, erasers, etc.) on their table, third graders had to come up with a solution to organize their supplies. First they asked questions, then imagined ideas, came up with a plan, created a prototype, test it, improved it...
Then, they came to the Lab.
Students were taught how to use Inkscape to design laser cut shapes and objects (like boxes). Then they set off to design their final version on the computer before it could be cut out of wood.
