Fairground K'NEX also with motor
|Show and Tell|
In my introduction I cover the QCA keywords. The students work in pairs to design and sketch out their ideas using their creativity. They build their structure. By limiting the material available problem solving is emphasised. Teamwork is also encouraged by limiting the time available to complete the task. At the conclusion of the activity, each team makes a short presentation to the rest of the class about their model and any special features. There is an option for the students to motorise their rides. This will take longer, but more closely meets the QCA.
