Design Analysing what you found out Discuss what you would like to achieve from the design (the main functions of the design).
Design Analysing what you found out Play with 'random assembly' with cards (each person has a card with an element drawn on it) move around the room putting different elements (identified in your survey) together in unusual ways (using different prepositions) to see if something new can emerge (e.g. wormery +in+raised bed = worm tower in raised bed).
Design Analysing what you found out Chose two elements, which may be in the design, to dramatise. Children are split into four even-sized groups - inputs and outputs for each element. Each child becomes either an input or output of their element. Dramatise to show how an output from one element can become an input to another element.
Design Analysing what you found out Celebrate the gathering and integration of information.
