PBS Kids: Design Squad Explains Design Thinking
Here are the best six minutes and thirty seconds I have spent this school year when it comes to understanding and teaching the design process to my students.
You may not use the same D-Think vocabulary but watching these kids complete the steps it takes to address and solve a problem is a great tool for students to learn and internalize the approach.
In addition, the Design Squad section on PBSkids.org is loaded with more videos, full episodes of the series targeted toward preteens and teens, as well as creative problem solving games. Our fourth graders are not only excelling at the activities they are also applying the design process to other projects we are completing.
