Classroom Ideas

Could be used as part of a structures topic in DT. The children could be asked to follow the clip step by step to make their 3D room or structure. The teacher could pause the clip at specific points so the children can watch the instructions and follow them. As part of a Literacy piece of work the children could write a set of instructions about the clip and then pass them to a different year group to try to follow. As part of the children’s Maths work the children could investigate a range of nets of 3D shapes, joining them together with tabs as the clip demonstrates.
