This booklet includes: - Grade descriptors - Flight path documents - Baseline assessments for prior knowledge - Design brief and specification worksheets - Homework tasks - Step by step instructions for build - Tips on filing and cutting the material - Design tasks - Evaluation sheets - Assessment sheets We recommend 10 lessons to complete the project and the resources can be varied to suit your needs.

This booklet acts as a scheme of work that is aimed to introduce pupils to basic metal working as well as working within a linear design process. We encourage that you use iteration in the designing stage of this alongside cardboard models to ensure that you are meeting the expectations of the GCSE exams board. I have taught this project to good results and making something that is of a professional standard. Ideal for any career insight into industrial process as well as understanding the way in which metals can be used to create a desirable product. For this project to be run successfuly you will need: Pewter Tadel Steel saucepan Bunsen burner with tripod/hob Sheet wood i.e laser ply or MDF 2D Design on computers accessible for the each pupil. There are kits available from many craft shops but i found that i could use a lot of the things that we already had available in the department. The pewter is suitable for being melted down many times over so waste is minimal. Once bought and you would like a editable version of this resource please contact me once you have paid for the resource.
