Grade 1 Uses the Design Thinking Model
Grade 1 students have been using our Design Thinking model during science class with Mr. Belsha, and this week they were on the MAKE stage.
Students were given simple materials like popsicle sticks and Play-Doh and were asked to use these items to design a structure.
After their hands-on session, they reflected on what went well and what challenges they faced during the MAKE stage.
Some students noticed that creating smaller structures as the building blocks for their larger structures was effective. Others remarked on running out of materials after underestimating how much they would need for the scale of their designs.
In the next lesson, they will finish building their structures, and move on to the TRY stage by testing out their stability.
