Product Design - Idea Generation, Sustainability and Target Market

Pupils' love being creative with this hands-on project. Students are tasked with up-cycling a waste Coca-cola bottle to create a new product for a particular target market. In this series of lesson, students are introduced to the benefits of up-cycling in relation to impact on the environment/sustainability. They then draw their own semantic mind-map to come up with product ideas of their own (creative strategy) for a certain target market. They then apply one or more of their ideas as an initial sketch. Resources have clear success criteria and peer assessment. Lesson plan is also included for further clarity. Introduction (fertile question) Class discussion Semantic mind-map task Sketching.annotation Task Peer assessment Plenary/review Optional extension tasks (rapid-prototyping, dragons den style critique) Activities should be spread over 2 lessons If you enjoyed this lesson, please see the other lessons in this or other Product Design series/SOW (where the full iterative design process is covered).

World Currencies Wordsearch Finance Money Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

World Currencies Wordsearch Finance Money Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'World Currencies'. 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!
