8th Grade Early-Finishers Design Challenge

As the 8th graders were finishing up with their felt monsters for their 1st grade buddies, some of the students were finished earlier than others, so I offered them a design challenge.

Using common supplies in the art room (craft sticks, toothpicks, cardboard, string, etc...) students were to work in teams of up to 4 people to create and design a small scale playground with the structures being functional (if it's a swing, it needs to swing).

4 or 5 teams of students took up the challenge and these are their highly creative playground designs. Maybe we have future city and regional planners in our mist.

While the craftsmanship might be a bit crude, these designs are high in creativity!  They whipped these up in a couple of 45 minute class periods.
