Happy Monday! We spent a lot of our day learning about Settings and Characters. This is the “where” and “who” that we can draw our design challenge problems from. We illustrated many different settings under the general Food theme: School Cafeteria, Home gardens, Restaurants, Grocery Stores, Farms and Supply Trucks. We identified the characters for each setting and then looked more closely at what problems might arise in each one and ways of solving those unique problems.
After snack we focused on the issue of overfishing. The children began to design some solutions and prototypes to solve different problems related to overfishing. We talked about catching too many fish (even if it’s the right kind, we might be able to sell them all), catching the wrong fish (dolphins getting caught in tuna nets) and that pole fishing while more specific requires too much time and money which makes it more expensive.
Here are some of the solutions and prototypes that we began working on today:
