Design and Technology Projects - Year 6

Design and Technology Projects - Year 6

These are two projects that I have created to be used for Year 6 but could easily be used for the rest of Upper KS2. First project - Dragon’s Den Wraps - This is based around the topic of healthy eating where students must design and make a healthy wrap to present to Dragon’s Den. In the project students will explore packaging and design their own unique packaging for their wrap. They will look at nutrition and create their own unique wrap that will appeal to their choice of market. Second project: Renewable Energy - This is a project in which students will build their own working renewable energy models. (a different one each week based on a weekly 2 hour lesson) They will make models based on wind energy, hydo-power, solar power and electric power. All projects can be made from normal materials found in the classroom or at home. Only small solar cells and working motors needed for two of the models in this project.

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Being a Designer means stepping out of your comfort zone and forgetting about your own preferences & needs. However, I have noticed that this is sometimes lost in classroom practice. Students are given a design brief or problem to solve, yet the final outcome is bias and based upon what THEY like and want. Students design something for themselves that they can take home and use - This resource prevents this from happening! 12 different consumer cards that are purposely written in a paragraphs, so that students can dissect the information, like a reading comprehension, pulling out the important facts that they need to know. This will show a detailed understanding. The cards include a range of people that have a variety of likes, needs and wants. This encourages students to choose a suitable consumer that is relevant to the problem that they have been asked to solve. (For example, if the problem is to design a product to help the elderly, then the Baby consumer profile card would not be suitable - Students should be expected to work this out after class discussion). Print on A4 or A3 paper and laminate!
