THE GARDEN DESIGN PROJECT

THE GARDEN DESIGN PROJECT

The Garden Design Project has been created as an integrated unit of work that incorporates and develops creativity, design, research and money handling skills. During this unit pupils will refine their understanding of area with complex tasks that require them to imagine and forward plan. They imagine they have successfully completed a garden design qualification and are much sought after by a range of eager clientele. They must decide which clients to work for and design a garden within a budget of £15,000. This clearly presented ‘Garden Project’ leads pupils step by step through the world of design, planning, site analysis, costing and keeping to a budget. This work is suitable for class work or extended homework.

Year 4: Area of Rectilinear Shapes: Problem Solving

Year 4: Area of Rectilinear Shapes: Problem Solving

Aimed for year 4 children. Learning Objective: To find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares through problem solving. Two differentiated worksheets for HA/MA and LA - both worksheets have two exercises. The second exercise is harder where the squares are not given to the children and there are missing measurements (for HA/MA). All measurements are given to LA. I had taught this lesson and it went really well. First exercise children can stick in their books. Second exercise - children will need to draw out the rectilinear shapes. An extension worksheet is available for those children who complete the work.

Area and Volume in a Rainbow Task

Area and Volume in a Rainbow Task

I made this task for a year 8 group as a one off lesson to incorporate different skills such as area of a circle, volume and unit conversion. We have area and volume as 'power standards' so we test the students on these topics all year, this was a task I designed for a one off lesson instead of giving them worksheets on volume. It can be modified and scaffolded to suit.

Triangles and real life problems (SMART Notebook file)

Triangles and real life problems (SMART Notebook file)

This file could be as a material for the whole geometry lesson in secondary grades. There are eight real problems which could be solved with using triangles (mainly right-angled). The most difficult part is to make the appropriate drawing and choose right formulas for calculations. Activity is made in "step by step" way: if the first challenge - to make the drawing - is too big, there are hints for it, and only then the solution and answer. For those colleagues, who do not use SMART Board and SMART Notebook, there is an opportunity to open the file in the website http://express.smarttech.com and use it.
