DT - Resource of the week

25th May 2012 at 01:00

Top card designs

For a DT project that pupils can take home and enjoy playing over and over, TES DT adviser Spencer_DT has created a Top Trumps scheme of work.

What is it?

A project book and a PowerPoint presentation that lead pupils through the development process, from initial design and mood board research to problem-solving and selecting features for their cards. By the end of the project they will have created their own set of cards and a presentation box, chosen a theme appropriate for their audience, assessed different ways of constructing the cards and critically evaluated their work.

Why is it useful?

The scheme contains a fantastic pack of resources ready for classroom use. Each page of the project book offers templates and the PowerPoint includes examples of Top Trump cards, mood boards and packaging.

What else?

Find a wide range of Top Trump teaching ideas on the TES website.
