#ThinkDo Activity Cards for D&T

(4)
For more FREE resources for D&T as well as a regular D&T newsletter and information on courses visit www.julieboyd.co.uk WHAT INCLUDED IN THE RESOURCE? The resource consists of 35 #ThinkDo activity cards presented as a PDF. It is aimed at KS3 and 4 D&T teachers, but could also potentially be used at KS5, and some cards may be suitable for KS2. #ThinkDo activities are short activities that include at least one image along with questions or ideas on how to get students ‘thinking’ and ‘doing’. They encourage students to notice the everyday D&T things around them. When used regularly they also develop a ‘muscle memory’ that encourages unconscious thinking about D&T along with constant evaluation and analysis of products that are around us all the time. The #ThinkDo activities can be used for anything that encourages students to think about D&T. They are not aimed at any particular year group and cover a variety of material areas and products. Many #ThinkDo activities are based on actual exam questions which makes them good for revision. They can also be used for starters, plenaries, a full lesson activity, to prompt discussion, or for homework activities. HOW THE RESOURCE MIGHT BE USED Print the slides out as they are to create an instant classroom resource. Laminate the print out to make it last longer. Students could write answers or annotation on to the laminate. Use the print outs to create a revision wall Use one of the cards as a starter, plenary or lesson activity Cut up the individual images on each slide & get students to match images to the question OTHER INFORMATION You can find out more about #ThinkDo activities at http://goo.gl/l871ZW Regular free #ThinkDo activities are posted on: Instagram (www.instagram.com/julieboydonline Facebook (www.facebook.com/julieboydonline) Twitter (@julieboydonline) There are also links to a range of free #ThinkDo activities at http://goo.gl/l871ZW Other free #ThinkDo activity cards can also be downloaded at https://goo.gl/WqM5NW This resource and its text & images must only be used by the person downloading it and must not be shared, adapted or sold in any way.

This is a 2 page summary (PDF) comparing the D&T GCSE specifications. This is our opinion only and it’s essential departments do their own comparisons and check the most up to date information on the exam board websites. We recommend that departments consider all exam board specifications when making their decision as each has advantages and disadvantages. ** Visit www.julieboyd.co.uk for a range of free resources, information on courses and products and a regular D&T newsletter. ** This resource and its text & images must only be used by the person downloading it and must not be shared, adapted or sold in any way.
