Still working on this idea of getting kids to ask the questions.

So what? 
Imagine the claw wasn’t curved. Would the rotating extension be as effective if they were straight? Would the claw then need a larger range of motion to get out of the way when not in use? Examine the design of the claw and define traits that work together to make the claw function efficiently. Retracting Cat’s Claw

You ask the questions and answer them which is actually a really good format. I would have been happy with that except I just read the book that suggests that getting the kids to formulate the questions is even better.

I’d like to see if we can make good statements that lead to the kids asking questions for these design challenge “stories”.

My favorite example of a statement that begs for questions is “It got bit off.”
