After the children were done planning, we discussed with them each part of their drawing, helping to engage them in rich discussions using specific vocabulary. The motorcycles each needed steering wheels, engines, mirrors, kickstands, pedals, throttles, rims, and windshields.
The children then got to work building their motorcycles. They referred often to their plans, helping to keep them focused and working on a purposeful creation together.
Notice the children looking over their plans and discussing them as they are in the middle of building the motorcycles!
