Third grade design thinking project for the Waltham Families School

The third grade visited our preschool friends at the Waltham Families School and spent the morning in choice time, playing games in the gym, and getting to know their parents who are enrolled in the ESL program there. We brought board games to teach to the parents and interviewed them to learn about their backgrounds.

Now, in Ms. Meeta's math class, students are design thinking a solution for picture book storage at home for their new found friends. 

 Before visiting, students came up with a list of four year old traits.
