Design And Technologies: Grades 5-6 provides opportunities for students to:
– explore the properties of materials including food and fiber;
– investigate designed solutions that ensure people are safe and comfortable in different environments.;
– study and critique sustainable designs around them and think about the purposes they serve;
– get hands-on creating, testing and reviewing their own designs.
When students indulge in practical activities they will work in small groups, take part in lively discussions and think critically and flexibly. The use of digital technologies is incorporated throughout this great resource.
