The cardboard challenge: Watch Janice Kato, an ICE presenter, get her students in the PBL mindset by challenging them to create a cardboard chair that will hold her weight: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BHt4ets0mLQOuJLhOZ_6k-TYGZGiTdq8/view?usp=sharing


A challenge like this allows students to explore without worrying about academic expectations. It is also a way for you to role play managing a PBL environment. WARNING: It will be loud and crazy....but super fun for your kids.

I love this idea! Janice is one brave lady (and an excellent presenter)! Thank you for sharing this, Matinga! I love the learning in what appears to be chaos. It reminds me of the Mr. Roger's quote.

Mr. Rogers' quote is getting lost in these days of high-stakes testing and increasing accountability.
