I have developed this for use predominantly with KS3 but it could also be used at KS4. 1 hour lesson. 1 x PPT which leads the lesson complete with short clips on the problem of over fishing and why it is a problem. Also a short clip on the work of the MSC in regulating fishing worldwide. 1 x Game for the whole class using popcorn and straw to mimic fish and a fishing rod.

Materials (top) trumps -sustainabilityQuick View

Materials (top) trumps -sustainability

Students play sustainability material trumps in pairs (one against another). They can have six cards each. The pack of twelve cards contains a range of materials (woods, metals, plastics, fabrics, glass, ceramic and carbon fibre). Pairs of students can play against other pairs, or individually in fours (3 cards each). There are three categories marked out of 10, for example 'ability to be replenished'. Once one student (or pair) has won all the cards, they can read the facts to each other (and/or themselves) I then get the students to rank the materials with the most sustainable at the top and least at the bottom. A really good activity to get them thinking about and discussing what makes a material/ object sustainable. It can be used for any year group. The PDF document is arranged to be printed duplex (double sided), then laminated and cut out. Suitable for the new DT curriculum and GCSE, CDT, Engineering and Science.
