Materials and Design Technology: Lesson 3 - Forces and Properties by Mind Map: Materials and Design Technology: Lesson 3 - Forces and Properties

1. Brief Outline of Lesson Plan

1.1. Intro: Explain to the students that today they will be conducting an investigation using different materials and studying the efficiency of the marble rolling. MAKE SURE TO REITERATE THAT THEY ARE NOT CREATING THEIR MARBLE RUNS. BUT INSTEAD RESEARCHING THEIR MATERIALS FOR THEM.

1.2. Body; Students are to record their results in their T&E books and write down a few sentences about what their results mean.

1.3. Conclusion: Come together and share the students 'results as a group.

2. Objectives

2.1. • Investigate how forces and the properties of materials affect the behaviour of a product or system (ACTDEK011)

2.2. • Select and use materials components, tools and equipment using safe work practices to make designed solutions (ACTDEP016)

2.2.1. Task

2.2.2. Prerequisites

2.3. • Plan a sequence of production steps when making designed solutions individually and collaboratively (ACTDEP018)

2.3.1. Task

2.3.2. Prerequisites

3. Assessment

3.1. Over the shoulder marking of their sentences they will write in regards to their findings and results.

3.2. Students are able to create sentences about their findings and what they mean.

4. Resources

4.1. Stopwatches

4.2. Marble run recycling material – toilet rolls, cardboard, plastic containers etc

4.3. T&E books

4.4. Pencils

5. Specific Learning Outcome

5.1. • Explain why or why not certain materials make their marbles go faster or slower.

6. Prior Knowledge

6.1. Students have been exposed to T&E language.

6.2. Students have worked on investigations earlier in the year making toy cars.

6.3. Exposure to different forces and properties of different materials.

6.4. Making lists of materials
