A Plan or A Picture?

Today we talked about the difference between a plan and a picture.

The importance of a plan is that the thinking is happening before the doing.
What happens when it comes time to carry out the plan?

*Trial and error
*Following thinking/project to completion

The importance of drawing a picture is that the thinking comes after the doing.
How is a drawing a picture of something a child has created different than a plan?

*Observation of detail
*Representation of object
*Discussion of three dimensional objects
*Trial and error
*Developing focus
*Self correction
