Sample unit for using drones in class

Sample unit for using drones in class

A sample unit for using drones in class - the ppt explains how we use drones in our school - we create ideas for a problem that a drone could solve in Nearpod. These designs are then planned on paper and prototyped in Tinkercad. The final version is printed using our 3D printers. We then use Tynker to program the drones. Also included are some introductory skills that you can build with your classes when they fly the drones - theres one for getting them to land the drone on a target board, and take a photo of the ‘Reconnaissance’ board and return to base. You can use the Score Card template if you want to turn it into a competitive team challenge. Take a look at my other resources if you enjoyed these - whole units are included for App Development and Animation, as well as resources for using Adobe Illustrator etc

Engines Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Design Engineering

Engines Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Design Engineering

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Engines'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

DT feedback/marking and assessment Stickers

DT feedback/marking and assessment Stickers

Extremely useful when you need to mark many D&T projects and books. These I have spaced perfectly to fit the "21-stickers-per-page". Print stick and go, it is a very good visual indicator of what pupils' have achieved. In addition to this you can use the colours to indicate the next step or level of achievement (|A a Rainbow, different flowers even medals). From red lowest (level 2) and purple Highest (Level 7-8). I am well aware that many schools do not use levels however you can use this and adapt it to your method of Assessment.
