Cover work for Design and Technology Lessons

2 different resources that can be used for lessons that need to be covered last minute. One lesson based on tool knowledge and one based on wood knowledge. Have used successfully for a few years, printed out and laminated and left in a draw for when a lesson needs last minute cover. Can be used by any specialism teacher and students can work in books or on paper. Based on a hierarchy system that differentiates the outcomes from a flash task, to a hulk task and finally an incredible task for high ability students.
