I have an idea of the ones I will choose. I plan to fit the tasks to the curriculum. Two questions: what do you think of this idea? and which principles would you focus on?

I put the interact in parentheses because I feel like there should be a good bit of observe before any heavy duty interaction comes along

"Obtain a yield" is a favorite for me because it puts the onus on me to be sure there is a point to the work we are doing. Edge is an important concept...it's hard to decide which ones but I'm feeling sure that I do want to keep it simple and focused on just a few principles.
