Simple Design and Technology Booklet KS1

Simple Design and Technology Booklet KS1

This simple booklet can be printed double sided and can be used for any DT activity in KS1. I used it when children made healthy pizzas, puppets and moving pictures based on the theme of 'the sea'. Children are able to learn the necessary stages of the Design process by following the steps in the booklet. Children start by stating what they are making, then can discuss and add to the booklet by stating what the product needs to do. Next, they will list the items needed to make the product and draw a picture, labeling it in order to show their DT skills. Literacy can be incorporated into the task by children writing a report of what they did. Finally, children can test and evaluate their products and write a basic evaluation about the product.

S.T.E.A.M - Famous Inventors Project

The Famous Inventors Project is one that aims to bring Enterprise in Education together with other curricular areas, focusing on S.T.E.A.M. The purpose of the project is for children to learn about Famous Inventors, select a famous and life changing invention to redevelop and design for use in the future then develop and run a mock business to make and market their product. The project culminates in a day of presentations and pitches, allowing the children to demonstrate their learning over the course of the project. This project not only meets many of the experiences and outcomes of the CfE/NC, but can help children develop towards the four capacities, as well as giving a real and relevant context to their learning with a perceivable goal to work towards. This fully comprehensive project pack gives an easy to use, fun and accessible project for upper stage pupils to enjoy. The document is in PDF format and contains 39 pages, including a full planner/assessment tool, teacher's notes and guidance, lesson outlines and directions as well as a set of appendices and handouts to use during the project.
