Souvenir Bird Project
Age range 5-7
First published 2014
This outlines a project undertaken in one school in which children designed and made a realistic felt souvenir bird to be sold in a shop at a wetlands centre. It includes researching and designing according to the six D&T essentials, focused tasks and design and evaluation worksheets.
Children were introduced to the wetlands centre and the idea of selling souvenirs to help raise money. It allowed them to take on the responsible role of designer, thinking about the purpose and user of the product. The PowerPoint presentation includes examples of souvenirs already sold in the shop and some examples of similar products to those they will be developing, before setting the brief and focused tasks to help them develop sewing skills. It includes extensive notes on the process and many of the slides can be adapted as a classroom resource.
