7 lesson project

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by jujames1, Apr 15, 2012.

  1. Due to time tabling issues, I have a class for just 7 lessons during the next rotation. HAs anyone got an interesting project, either graphics or Rmt etc that I could run for approximately 7 lesson. I am quite happy to share any resources I have, but generally my projects are geared up for a lot more contact with the kids?

    Thanks, JJ
     
  2. I forgot to say that it is for year 8 . Any help would be great. Thanks

    It depends how you want to break it down if you can just do a quick practical project without worrying too much about the research, design, prototyping, evaluation etc

    We do a birdhouse with year 8s:

    Two sides, roof, base - dovetail joints. If you like, stick one side under the laser cutter for a nice little tweety-pie laser cut design but that might take too much time. Other than that you can show them how to use the soldering iron to burn some designs in. Make sure the technician cuts everything up to size first and mitres the roof pieces. Do a template to help them with the dovetails.

    You can also put in some isometric drawing skills and a nice bit of research about garden birds if you want to do some folder work.
