Iguana Home Task
Evaluate and explain how to fix the habitat of a classroom iguana.
In the Iguana Home task, students help troubleshoot and fix the habitat for a classroom iguana named "Iggy." Students first learn about iguanas and their basic needs, and then they work through the task to determine how best to fix Iggyâ€™s wire mesh cage.
Students were able to identify design problems and predict the outcomes of design decisions but were less able to explain how a design change could solve a problem.
