5.3.2. Identify and clarify information and ideas

6. Designing 'My Dog' (Lesson 5 out of 8)

6.1. Step 1: Prompt students prior knowledge. Guide students to prompt knowledge - Ask what they have learnt so far (refer to their investigation points)

6.1.1. Motivate and engage students. Make sure you remind them that they are now capable of crating/designing their own picture

6.2. Step 2: Then you will draw or cut out pictures of dogs. At this time you will also be collecting images to help emphasise and create your background

6.2.1. Explain that once they have made their decision of what they want their dog to loo like they can start Individual work, therefore no two copies should be alike

6.2.2. cut out template

6.3. Next you will use you knowledge of creating basic mechanisms just like we did in lesson 4 and come up with a way to inform students that, the dog for example, doesn’t like the living environment, or the dog is really happy because food is on its way. Since dogs wag their tail when they are happy, you therefore have to find away to make your dogs tails go from side to side. One mechanism already shown to you that could help you with this would be the ‘lever’ mechanism.

6.4. Give instruction of working conditions; Tell students they can work in pairs to help and build off of each other, but they must be doing their own work. Dogs must be different.

6.5. Step 5: Give instructions as to what material each person will need and that one person from every group must collect and item for they table (Avoid unwanted behaviour). and what process their are going through to create it.

6.5.1. Materials

6.6. Step 6 : Signal to go "When I say go" Reminding off appropriate behaviour when working with a partner.

6.7. Step 7: After step 7 get straight into monitoring all group conversations- make sure all students stay on task.

6.8. Step8 :Students may need one or two session (1hr ) to complete. At the beginning or end of each session ask them if they could change design or improve their piece and if there is anything as a facilitator we can do.

6.9. Step 8: After finished assembling their dog, ask to paint, colour or add material to finalise their Dog picture. Step 9: Stick Dog puppet and informational text of their chosen breed on A3 poster paper and discuss strengths and weakness

6.9.1. Colour in your dog!
