SketchUp CAD Modelling

Pupils’ love being creative with this project. Lessons are differentiated with strong cross-curricular (Literacy, Geography, Science) links. Also Included are diffirenciated resources and teacher examples. In this fourth lesson in the scheme, students will continue the iterative, product design process. Students are tasked with realising their final drawing as a CAD model, using SketchUp software. Included is a 6, page step-by-step guide for students to follow (self-directed learning). Lesson consists of a starter> class discussions> main task (with guide) and plenary/review. Lesson should ideally be extended over several lessons. Also included is an additional starter that could be used in the next, subsequent lesson. If you enjoyed this lesson, please see the other lessons in my Product Design series/SOW (where the full iterative design process is covered). In this unit, pupils will gain an understanding into what is product design and the creative process of a designer, from existing research/analysis, writing a specification, initial ideas, isometric drawing and CAD modelling.
