the cartoon, whether the
information stated in the cartoon
is accurate and demonstrates an
understanding of how to safely
and appropriately manage the
tool or equipment
Data Collection (WHAT)
Books containing sketches will
be collected as assessment as

& T)
-Use labelled
sketches/models to
represent their
ideas/designs (D,C
& T)

-Refresh students knowledge on


measurement using cm.
-Food package sketches are drawn,
designed and annotated with type of
materials, measurements etc.
-Sketches will be swapped with a
partner and feedback will be given on
the most likely solution.

3D shapes which they will then be


able to apply to their own sketches.
-Students will be taught how to
annotate and what needs to be
included
-Students will need to have
knowledge of how to give feedback
to peers

Assessment Criteria (HOW)


-Clearness and accuracy of
sketches
-Whether the solution meets the
design brief
-Content that has been annotated

-Identify properties
of materials that
make them ideal
for product (D,C &
T)
-Participate in
projects to promote
the sustainable
management of
resources (Civics
and Citizenship)
- Sustainable
futures result from
actions designed to
preserve quality of
environments (CC:

-Students will learn how to create
basic steps to complete their product
so that their process is organised and
fewer errors are made
-Students are taught which tools
should be used for their materials as
that will ensure a more effective final
product
-Students are taught how to assemble
materials together

Materials: Final product, paper,

Data Collection (WHAT)


Final products will be collected as

Assessment Criteria (HOW)


-Products will be checked against
design brief to inform the teacher
whether students understand the
techniques and concepts delivered
throughout the lessons.

-Consider how well


the product meets
its purpose (D,C &
T)

-Students then evaluate their products,


comparing them to the design brief
-Teach students to form a checklist and
state whether each criteria has been
fulfilled or needs improvement or is
not shown
-Then students make modifications to
their design if possible

Deakin University: Primary Technology: Design and Creativity

which allows them to identify if their


product meets the design brief. If not,
students identify why and attempt to
revise their design so that it does.
Assessment Criteria (HOW)
-Final product will be assessed
based on whether any modifications
were made to their product after
feedback or reflection occurred. It
will also be assessed on whether it
meets the criteria specified in the
design brief.

Appendix1:DesignBrief

DESIGNBRIEF

Name:

Year: 4

Context
Students are undertaking this project as part of a larger inquiry unit focused on
sustainability. This project will follow on from an excursion to a local shopping centre
where students have had the opportunity to explore the different products displayed in
the shops, taking specific note of the packaging and the information on it. Throughout
this project, students will have the opportunity to apply skills and knowledge from other
domains such as English, The Arts, Civics and Citizenship as well as engaging with
cross-curriculum priorities such as Sustainability. Using the design brief, students will
become familiar addressing a problem that has been posed, formulating ideas or
possible solutions and creating the most plausible solution with the specifications in
mind. Students will learn to use the appropriate tools, safely and hygienically and
become familiar with appropriate material and tool selection. Students will learn a variety
of assembling techniques and finally, production techniques that will enable a wellconstructed, functional and aesthetically appealing final product.
