New Springboards: Ideas for Technology
Thomas Nelson Australia, 1993 - Building -- Study and teaching (Primary) - 327 pages
Solving practical problems is the realm of technology. This text is based on the technological process of 'design, make and appraise.' Problems are presented in 160 design briefs which focus on everyday items and draw from the interests of children. This well-structured teacher reference provides ten topics: Air and flight; Building and buildings; Clay, sand and soil; Fibres and fabrics; Food and packaging; Musical instruments; Paper; Tools; Toys; and Transport and communications. Each topic covers four levels from Pre-school to Year 6. There are also integrated maps for each topic detailing possible cross-curricula links, and ideas for assessment, evaluation and record-keeping.
