One of the final things that we asked the students on our last day was: where else could you use the process of plan, do, review that we taught you?
At first the students were not quick to answer, but then we gave them some suggestions. How about if you were going to do a garden. How would you plan that?
One girl said she would make some drawings and sketches. They giggled when we suggested that they could model it too, but agreed that it was possible. Another student said that you could do drawings to plan where the flowers would go.
We reminded the students that they can use the design process for many things: building forts, baking, painting a picture, rearranging their bedrooms . . . the sky is the limit.
