Through this unit of work focused on designing and making a desk tidy, children learn about structures and stability, 3D shapes and nets, sustainability, joining materials and how containers are used for different purposes.
The resource contains two PowerPoint presentations, one for exploring and making nets by disassembling existing packaging, which can then be turned inside-out and decorated for another use. The other presentation invites children to investigate packaging and consider issues around sustainability before designing and making a container for a particular purpose and decorating their container appropriately. There are also worksheets on ideas, evaluating containers, investigating packaging and a final evaluation of their design. The resource comes with an adapted unit of work including teacher tips and homework activities as well as IDEAs, FTPs and DMAs, and a pdf showing 21 images of various containers that can inspire ideas and be used as a classroom display.
