Design LAB Class Visit #2

Yesterday I made my second trip to Nativity Catholic School in Pleasant Ridge to visit the 1st Grade Class I am working with for this year's Design LAB project, themed 'Dwelling'. We started the session by brainstorming about the different spaces of a home and what is needed in rooms such as the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. The second activity involved a survey of their school building (shown below next to the church) for which we talked about the building's form, materials, surroundings and usage. To keep things fun, I made use the classroom smart board by drawing pictures of all the kids' responses, which got them really excited and kept their attentions for the hour I was there, which isn't always easy when dealing with a class full of six year olds. I look forward to going back again in two weeks and seeing how the students progress with their projects.
