Reflection: Routines and Procedures DESIGN CHALLENGE: iFarm (1 of 2) - Section 4: EXPLAIN: Seeds to trees


At the end of the prototype activity guide are a few pages of pictures of three of the most commonly grown crops in the world: corn, wheat, and sugarcane.  During this lesson, students randomly selected one of these pictures from a box next to the door at then sat at one of the lab "hubs" that had the larger, corresponding picture taped to it.  In this way, I was able to create three large "teams" teams of students that I could then divide into three smaller teams as necessary.  Attached is a short video of my empty classroom.  There are three student "hubs" with sinks in the middle.  Each hub has three spokes.  There will be one unique picture attached to each hub; student groups are generally located at each spoke.
