Tissue-Paper Timed Design Challenge!

Fourth, fifth, and sixth graders participated in a timed design challenge this week. They met with the kindergartners and first graders, took requests and measurements, and created super hero costumes for their muses. The design requirements were that they had to incorporate pleats, draping, and fastening into their costumes. They had one hour to create the costumes. Upon completing the project, student reflections included: The tissue paper was a lot harder to work with than I expected; My imagined costume was much harder to achieve than I had expected; I needed more time; Next time I would make a less complicated design! I really liked designing for my K/1!
