Product Description
Help Santa and his Elves in this design thinking project as students work through the challenge of designing gift wrapping paper and choosing a toy that perfectly fits 5 different personality profiles, including one of their classmates.

Students will go through the design thinking process as they utilize their analytical thinking, while equally engaging in creative thinking, to understand and empathize what each of their "clients" needs are.

I created this for my 3rd and 4th graders as a fun project during the week before winter holidays. Given that this project was designed to be open ended it can be used with a range of ability levels.

Printing Tips:
Please note that this product was created in 8.5 X 11 in. paper format standard in the USA. I'm teaching overseas where the standard paper size is A4. I've been able to print on any other size paper by choosing 'shrink to fit' or 'fit to printable area' in the printer options. I've even enlarged some response activities to fit on A3 paper for group work.
