Textiles Fabrics Top That!

Textiles Fabrics Top That!

A great lesson starter/settler or revision aid. Learners to work in pairs and divide up the cards. Start with the top card and select a category stating the value shown on the card. The highest value wins and the player with the highest value takes the other players card. If the values are the same both cards are put into the centre and the winner of the next round wins those cards as well. Players continue until all cards have been collected by one player.

Students then consolidate their analysis into a short presentation through group-work, in a 'dragons den style' format. Introduction to ACCESS FM Preparatory Task Consolidation Task Presentation Peer assessment (vote) If you enjoyed this lesson, please see the other lessons in this or other Product Design series/SOW (where the full iterative design process is covered).
