The 6th grade science teachers challenged their students to know enough about birds to teach a junior kindergartener. As a former kindergarten teacher, I know that this is no easy task. First, you have to have the scientific knowledge, then you need to scaffold it for a 4 year old, then you need to design an interactive exhibit that they can figure out on their own - this was the challenge - create a museum exhibit on a feature of birds for a kindergartener.
I was enchanted by the work employed by the 6th graders to do this - they used our design thinking model to research, prototype, and iterate with the Jr.K. students until today's grand unveiling. The photos are too fun, so don't miss my entire slideshow here. I also included a few shots below which have SK and Jr.K students enjoying the exhibits.
