Australian Curriculum Year 1 & 2 Design & Technology Materials Unit features fun, engaging and cooperative learning strategies for exploring how characteristics and properties of materials and components are used to produce design solutions.
It consists of 10 lessons to be speed across 10 weeks. In this unit students learn about design briefs and systems as they organise a sport shed, build a bird house and make a house for a pet rock. They also look at the materials used in their local environment and how they are made accessible to everyone. To keep lessons simple and succinct, the planner features five to six steps for each lesson. This unit has been a consistent hit every year with my students. Teachers need to use their own skill to ensure the lessons remain explicit and teaching opportunities are not missed.
