Student Interim Reports

Simple sketches help scaffold the design thinking of both beginning and expert designers. While a tech ed teacher might require students to place of measurements (called "dimensions") or use hidden lines to show more details of a design, math and science students benefit from making a simple sketch accompanied by an explanation.

The Interim Reports on this page will show you what students' work might look like mid-way through the parachute unit. Some teachers have students create a page for each design they come up with and then test. The Learning By Design curriculum template pages for Design Diaries that enable students to collect test data and sketches for each design attempted.
