Sixth-Grade Design Thinking

Sixth-grade students had fun one morning last week when they practiced "Design Thinking". Design Thinking is a STEM activity that allows students the opportunity to make an abstract idea more concrete. Students rotated between several stations containing various items (magnets, foil, LEGOs, blocks and notecards). They were challenged to create something in five minutes with the items provided at each station. This activity engaged different learning styles and provided a flexible framework for collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.
