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.

PaperWorks: KS3 Design & Technology – Pack 5: Paper and Cardboard Packaging

PaperWorks: KS3 Design & Technology – Pack 5: Paper and Cardboard Packaging

PaperWorks Pack 5 is a graphics-based resource for 11 to 14 year olds. The resource challenges students to respond to a realistic packaging design brief, by creating a logo and brand, then designing a packaging solution based on the ‘shelf-ready packaging’ (SRP) requirements that are now commonly specified by customers of the cardboard packaging industry. There are four different briefs so you can adapt the resource to the varying needs of your class. Students can work individually, in pairs or small teams and we expect the project to take three or four lessons, but you can adapt it as you see fit to meet your own needs. During their work, students reflect on the aesthetic, economic and environmental values of cardboard packaging, create and assess prototypes and use hand drawing, Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM) systems to model their ideas. You can request free samples to assist with project work. Send your name and school address to samples@cpi-paperworks.org.uk This is a complete project with three whiteboard-friendly videos, teachers’ notes, background information, a student project with four design briefs, and links to further useful online information. PaperWorks Pack 5 offers the opportunities to: • Teach students how to respond to a design brief requiring the creation of a logo and the development of a prototype packaging solution for a product. • Develop students’ understanding of how logos are used in the branding of products and the importance of colour, text and imagery. • Challenge students to design a logo by considering and arranging text, images and information to suit the target market. • Teach students about cardboard packaging, its environmental, economic and aesthetic qualities and how it is used, considering real life examples of cardboard packaging and logo designs. • Develop students’ drawing skills by sketching different boxes, then evaluating and choosing the best option. • Develop students’ CAD system skills by accurately designing a prototype box. • Help students model their prototype using CAM or scissors and evaluate how effective it is in relation to the customer’s brief and to suggest improvements that should be made. The teachers’ notes, student design briefs, and background information PDFs can be downloaded from TES. The accompanying videos and links are easy to find in the Secondary KS3 area at: http://www.paperworks.school.
