Insect Theme AQA GCSE Textiles Design Question 2018 Resources

Insect Theme AQA GCSE Textiles Design Question 2018 Resources

This resource consists of the blank design question using the Insect Theme, a mark scheme for the students to either self assess or peer assess and a vocabulary sheet to help them. I have left the mood board part blank as my students make their own but very easy to copy and paste images or a whole mood board from another author if needed. I used this year in and year out but adapt it to the exam theme. I also draw examples and put them on the board and get the students to mark my design question work as a starter. Usually teach this over 1-2 hours depending on the ability of the class. As stated in my other resources, I have 11 years experience of teaching this course and I have been a moderator for AQA. Good Luck with your classes this year :)

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Such a fun lesson! As art of teaching microhabitats my class and I created one large bug hotel in our garden area, it could also be done in any forest area nearby, but the closer the better as you can visit and investigate the bugs and which environment they’re most drawn too. Included is a brief powerpoint encouraging the children with ideas of what it may look like and natural environments for different types of insects. I would send the parental letter out a week or two before so they can help out with the items needed. Enjoy!
