This is a new Eco Stuffed Toy project which has been updated for both the new Donaldson curriculum in Wales and to prepare pupils for the new D&T GCSE from 2017. It contains EVERYTHING you need to teach your upper KS3 pupils how to design and make an eco stuffed toy including covering sustainablility concerns such as environmental and ethical issues including the Sustainable Development Goals.
The brief: “You have been asked to design and manufacture a small stuffed character toy designed for your choice of target market. The aim of the project is to design a sustainable product using at least 25% recycled or eco materials.”
It has been created for a full 20 week project but could be reduced for shorter rotations or even extended due to the extra activities at the end. It also includes images of handouts to be printed for the pupils and links and QR codes to several supporting informative and instructional videos created by myself as part of my sustainable fashion organisation SustFashWales. These are available on YouTube and the link has been provided.
This package contains the 28 page pupil workbook (both .doc and .pdf), supporting teacher PowerPoint (which has many extra activities such as printing, dyeing etc at the end), examination paper (both .doc and .pdf) and both a simple and detailed SoW.
