Getting Familiar with the Design Process in 2nd Grade

Our 2nd graders have been on an incredible journey of discovery for the past two weeks, delving deep into the fascinating world of the Engineering Design Process.

Our little engineers have been soaking up the wisdom of the six essential steps: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Test, and Improve.

We split into groups and took on the challenge of navigating these steps in our Science Journals. It’s been a fantastic exercise in teamwork and compromise as we brainstormed and decided on the most promising designs.

After days of meticulous planning and sketching out our models, the moment arrived to bring our wonderful creations to life. Our young teams worked together brilliantly, constantly testing and refining their projects.

The grand finale was the test to see which design could hold the most Greek Books, and our 2nd graders rose to the occasion. The winning group managed to support an impressive 4 Books, while even the group with the lowest holding capacity still proudly held 2 books!

The future is certainly looking promising for these young innovators!

Thank you Ms. Hannah Felske, for sharing these photos.
