Design & Technology Cover Lesson / Mini project

Design & Technology Cover Lesson / Mini project

Ideal for a cover lesson or mini - project. Suitable for all age ranges. Summary: students research, plan and design a range of crazy golf obstacles. Ideal to have some cardboard so that students can make their designs. Great pair/group activity. Bring some gold balls and putters into the lesson for students to try out their designs. I'm sure this could be extended with older groups to create the obstacles from wood / acrylic.
