What is a De-Construction Kit?

fisher-pricerecordplayerA De-Construction Kit is the opposite of a construction kit. A construction kit comes with lots of pieces and instructions for making models. A De-Construction Kit comes with a model that is complete, cleverly broken, or partially complete. It has instructions that guide you to explore, change, fix, or complete it.

For example, a kit to help people learn about gears, springs, and basic audio could be a Fisher-Price® Music Box with instructions to:

  • Explore a complete one
  • Debug a broken one
  • Complete one with missing parts

You can do lots of things as you take apart a De-Construction Kit! For example, you can  explain, find, fix, label, select, unscramble, categorize, compare, and test them.
