PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Cutting edge design ideas come from a unique idea twisted with a hint of the familiar. A great way to encourage students to stretch their thinking is to provide open-ended design challenges. The person who invented the basket didn’t know what a basket was. He or she was probably looking for a way to carry things. Instead of saying, “Design a basket” ask kids to “Design a way to carry a collection of small things”. By changing our wording, we change our expectations. By stating the purpose of the design, rather than the name of the object we have in mind, we allow students to think of creative, original ideas. They might still design a basket, but the door is also left open to other possibilities.

This PDF download includes 39 Design Challenge Cards and a "My Design Sketch" grid paper for students to draw and label their ideas.
