Lesson 4 Overview
In this lesson, students finalise and print their creations
1. To finalise and print their animals.
2. To create a justification or reasoning behind why they have made their animal as they have. This should be in the form of a 20-30 second informal speech. Students may wish to include some points made in their blogs about issues faced, as they worked towards their final creation. Students will present this at their parent evening to showcase the units work and their creations as well as to form part of their final assessment.
1. ST3-10LW - describes how structural features and other adaptations of living things help them to survive in their environment
2. EN3-9E recognises, reflects on and assesses their strengths as a learner
- Explain to students that this is our final session and their animals need to be finalised today.
- Assist any students who need a bit of a move along and address any issues that have been raised.
- Students will continue to work within 123D Creature to finalise their animals.
- Once students have completed their design, explain to students they need to begin creating their justification. It does not need to be lengthy, 20-30 seconds per group will be fine.
Students should include the following:
- A name for their animal
- Where it lives
- How it survives
- Why they have included certain structures or adaptions.
- What makes their animal the "ideal animal".
- Allow 5 minutes at the end of the lesson to reflect on student progress. Discuss what they enjoyed, what they found difficult, how they overcame this etc.
Parent afternoon will need to be the following day to allow time to print!
Invite parents to come in to the school or venue to view and appreciate the students work. In this time, have students present their justification. This night should be a celebratory time and time to support and congratulate students on their achievement.
