Day 14: Safe Carriers Part III

 

Goal:

    Students will use modern packaging materials to create a safe place.

 

Process:

  1. After the students have made their carriers, have them wear or carry them for a day in school.
  2. Ask the students to write about their experiences with the carriers. Did they feel protective? Did they try to avoid large crowded areas? Did they try to avoid areas that did not feel “safe?” Where were these places? How did they know what was safe and what was not safe? How did their carrier work? Was their object protected or did it get crushed? How could they have improved their designs?
