PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you're thinking about doing a unit of work on Flight, I have the perfect accompaniment for your unit.

I used this Flight workbook as a culminating activity for an integrated program on Flight and Energy. The program was integrated with English focusing on constructing flowcharts to identify the important elements involved in a procedure. Finally, students were involved in writing procedures.

Some of the key ideas and objectives I wished to achieve included students being able to:

- Discuss and write about the concept of energy and the different forms of energy;
- Explain energy transfer: potential energy to kinetic energy;
- Orally explain something they have made;
- Construct flowcharts to identify the important elements in a procedure; and
- Write a procedure to explain how they made a toy

For this culminating activity students were provided with the following scenario:

You work for a toy company and have been informed that the company would like a new toy that flies. You need to use the technology process (investigating, devising, producing, evaluating) to design your toy and then test your toy (according to your goals), finally completing a procedure for the making of your toy.

The booklet involves students in the following:

Investigate: Use resources to research information about different flying machines. What do you want your toy to do? Who is your toy for? What age group? Boys or girls?

Devise: Design a flying toy that meets the needs of your target audience. What will your toy look like? What will it do? What materials will you need to make your toy? How will you make it?

Produce: Use your plan and materials to produce a flying toy. Did you select appropriate materials? Did you need to adjust your design at all?

Evaluate: Test your flying toy to see if it matches your original intentions. How successful was your flying toy? If you made alterations during production did it make a difference? Were you happy with your design? What would you do differently next time? What were some of the things you accomplished or were happy with?

Present: Select either a flow chart or procedure to explain how to make your flying toy.
