Grade 5 students explore the design cycle
For the past three and a half weeks, Grade 5 students have been busy exploring the design cycle related to our unit, How We Express Ourselves. Now, the students are walking through the process themselves by creating their own prototypes. These prototypes are inspired by problems or challenges a user may experience in everyday life. Their designs are the students' creative solutions to these problems or challenges either by inventing something new or innovating an existing item. In going through the process, students are directly learning about what it means to design and the attributes designers exhibit.
We look forward to sharing their final products!
