Some good ideas here, but I'm not sure how parts hang together. Perhaps due to skim-reading the medium term plan, but I don't really understand how all the pictures are being used. Also, quite a few of the suggested links are now (inevitably) out of date.
Planning and full resources for this unit of work.
Some of the resources have been gathered from other places...many my own. The success crtiries were put on under seperate measure a while ago but while I have referred to them in this planning - I thought I would include them within this section also.
Hope it is of some use.
PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK :D
Design and Technology Scope and Sequence<br />
A Unit plan outlining the design process, research, prototyping making and evaluating.<br />
This can be applied to software, hardware, websites, craft, furniture, business marketing etc<br />
A prototype of an actual product can be made or a system such as a diet plan.<br />
All the student has do do is identify a need to be fulfilled and then design a way to address that need.<br />
My students did this by making websites, designing whole school software, making wooden tables, glass tables, vases, solar phone chargers and a business shirt that had a magnetic strip instead of buttons.<br />
This is a quiz to use after you’ve taught more detailed information on cell references and formulas in Excel 2013, i.e. absolute cell references, mixed cell references, external references and named ranges. The quiz questions are based on a screenshot of a spreadsheet, which is included. Here’s an example of 1 of the 10 multiple choice questions included. “Which of the following refers to an external reference?”.<br />

How to use in Your Classroom:<br />
This review assignment is excellent to use as an individual assignment. <br />
This assignment includes the teacher answer key and the student handout. <br />
If this assignment works well in your class please take a minute to post a review. Thanks in advance!<br />
As part of the U.S. government's commitment to Let Girls Learn, First Lady Michelle Obama and the Peace Corps have formed a powerful collaboration to expand access to education for adolescent girls around the world. Educating girls is essential to healthy and thriving communities but, globally, 62 million girls are not in school, and barriers to adolescent girls completing school are particularly significant. In some countries, fewer than 10% of teenage girls complete secondary school.<br />
This programme will address that challenge by empowering local leaders to put lasting solutions in place. Peace Corps Volunteers who live and work at the grassroots level will serve as catalysts of community-led change, and every American can get involved and make a difference.<br />
FOR SCHOOLS FOR GIRLS AND OTHER EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS SPECIFICALLY FOR GIRLS<br />
Students will learn how to develop an hypothesis and create an engineering investigation to solve a hypothetical problem.<br />
1. Students working in one of two groups will follow the steps in engineering design/experimentation to create an hypothesis regarding the use of limestone vs. concrete to create blocks to be used in building miniature pyramids.<br />
2. After learning how to mix limestone or concrete (depending on group), students working with either limestone or concrete will follow the steps in engineering design.<br />
3. Students will build miniature pyramids using either limestone or concrete.<br />
4. Students will test their pyramids' ability to withstand strong winds, sandstorms, and torrential rains using simulation.<br />
5. Students will determine whether concrete or limestone were most likely used to build the Egyptian pyramids by using both to create mini-blocks and using them to create pyramids.<br />
6. Students will record results using charts and anecdotal records.<br />
7. Students will complete engineering a solution by working as a class by designing and building a prototype pyramid that can withstand salt water and aquatic conditions for the future scenario.
