This clip could be used to provide pupils with help in a task where they are given instructions to design their own under-stairs shelving unit. Pupils could be given the task of designing the unit on a piece of A3 paper and measuring the size of each shelf needed to provide this to some builders. Pupils could then write full instructions on how to assemble and how to measure wood to ensure that it is of the correct size.
