Unformatted text preview: Crossley Fields J&I Lesson Plan Date Autumn Term Year Group 3 Subject: Design and Technology: Unit 3D: Photograph Frames (adapted Bridges) Learning Objectives Lesson 1 Why it is important for structures to be stable the effectiveness of triangulation in structures that some structures are made stable by having a wide base to disassemble and evaluate familiar products Resources Vocabulary mug tree stable triangulation stand music stand tripod span strength tripod pictures of bridges Evaluation sheet Introduction Explain that the children are going to make bridges Look at mug tree, music stand, tripod explain advantages of stable structures Show the children a variety of pictures of bridges and ask them to identify how they are able to stand up. Main Activities (Chn. to work in mixed ability pairs. Differentiated through provision of additional support as necessary) Core Ask the children to work in small groups to compare the frames in terms of different features- How it stands up- What components are there?- How it looks- What is it made of? Why?- How easy it would be to build- How did they make it strong?- How well it bridges the gap- Who would use it?- What kind of bridge it is- Where would it stand? Identify component parts of the photograph frames and describe what each is for understand the principles of triangulation and strengthening in simple structures. Extension Evaluate a second bridge Plenary Children to report back to class Compare bridges by talking about their features and discuss the effectiveness of their 1 design.
