Before the lesson
- To look at objects and understand how they move
Pupils should be taught to:
- Explore and evaluate a range of existing products
- Explore and use mechanisms [for example, levers, sliders, wheels and axles] in their products
Pupils needing extra support: Could be provided with pre-cut card to create their Lengths of material (for example, metal or card) that are joined together by pivots, so that the levers (lengths) can move as part of a mechanism…. systems with.
Pupils working at greater depth: Encourage experimentation in order for them to produce more creative linkages.
