Living Sustainably SoW and Lesson Support
The Scheme of Work (SoW) provides an overarching view of the project and each Lesson Support document provides the granularity for each stage.
Learners will develop their planning skills and identifying how their builds will not only be made from sustainable materials but also to allow the owners of their builds to live in a sustainable manner.
In order to understand the meaning of living sustainably and what defines a sustainable material, this involves a lot of research. A range of reading techniques, such as close reading, skimming and scanning will also develop as part of this research.
The project provides the learners with opportunities to develop their writing skills, especially in the initial research and planning phase and also the evaluation phase at the end of the project. Critical thinking and problem-solving are at the heart of Science and Technology when analysing problems to develop models, solutions and innovations. This is an integral part of this project especially so during the building phase of the project. When developing their sustainable builds from their plans, learners will be making decisions and solving problems sub-consciously as part of their thinking processes.
Planning and organisation are key in scientific and technological processes and learners will be organising and planning their projects and ideas, while setting their own goals within distinct requirements. They will also be critically evaluating their progress and results to further improve their ideas and outcomes.
