5 Day Design Thinking Challenge
This Design Thinking Challenge is intended to engage students in simple activities that allow them to practice thinking about creating for a specific user (Design Thinking Basics), examining context (Exhaust It!), using senses and observations (Group Poem), analyzing and synthesizing information (Box of Stuff), and practice divergent thinking (1000 Uses).
Each of the 5 challenges includes a video that can be easily downloaded and shared directly with students to create an asynchronous challenge that you can then discuss synchronously. All of the challenges use materials found around the house or in the recycling for an equitable learning experience.

As our lessons are rooted in evergreen best practices of how to create a flipped classroom, you will be able to use them for years to come no matter what the new normal looks like.
Our tools are created by teachers for teachers. That's what makes them so effective.
"My plan is to give my students daily challenges...this is great. It keeps us thinking and builds on community. Thanks for sharing with us!"
“This was a great course. I enjoyed thinking about how to use more design challenges in my classroom. It was also real in letting me think about my "not-to-do" list. I feel like this can help me when I get back into my non-virtual classroom as well as giving my students optional tasks for home learning and design.”
