A fun lesson resource for your KS4 students studying methods of production for GCSE Business Studies, covering all specifications.
The group work production activities based on a car manufacturing scenario will really help students to develop and apply their understanding about different methods of production (job, batch and flow) and their advantages and disadvantages.
The learning aims are as follows:
- Define what production is
- Participate in production activities, representing job, batch and flow methods
- Analyse and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of different methods of production
Included in this teaching resource is a PowerPoint presentation, with starter activity, key terms, instructions, reflection exercises and questions, as well as a plenary activity to assess student learning and understanding. There is also a student task instruction sheet for when they working in groups, as well as a 'car' proforma sheet - the choice of product being 'produced' can be easily adapted/changed according to your preference.
