Big6 Stage 1: Task Definition
Define the task (the information problem).
Identify the information needed to complete the task.
I am so glad you are here!
My friend, Mrs. Petroske, asked me to watch her greenhouse while she is away on vacation. The only problem is, I spilled juice all over the instructions she left me. Here’s what her letter looks like:
She even left me a diagram to make sure I knew what the parts look like. I messed that one up too!
So you see, I have no idea why each of the plant parts is important to the plant! I need you to investigate the function, or job, of each of the plant parts and fix the letter for me!
