Making an MDF Spinning Top

A slideshow and worksheet that cover the making of an MDF spinning top. A great first mini project for KS3 students. Covers technical drawing of a Hexagon, using a Tenon saw, bench hook, pillar drill, mallet and more. Tried and tested, students love having a spin off tournament afterwards - opportunity to talk about friction, energy and rotational movement.
