Empathy for Peppy
In October we kicked off our Placentinker space by reading The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires. Placentino students were given the charge of making the most magnificent thing for our mascot Peppy the penguin using cardboard, masking tape and pipe cleaners. We talked about empathy and how we would design something for Peppy based on an interview Mrs. Carey had with him asking about his feelings, his likes and dislikes. We shared our creations with our classmates and discussed our processes and how we showed empathy in our designs.
