Macquarie Fields Public School 1 Stage 2: Year 3 Overview The students in Year 3 were studying the Rainforest Story Path unit for Stage 2. The aim was to tie in SciTech and the design process into the unit of work in a way that was relevant and meaningful to all students. Promoting Reduce, Reuse and Recycle was a focus for the children during the whole unit whilst living in a throw away lifestyle.

Macquarie Fields Public School September, 2007 Exploring and defining the task The link to the Rainforest Story Path unit was to examine the different types of jewellery available from the rainforest and its people from around the world. During this process the students were encouraged to reduce, reuse and recycle in as many areas as possible. The students were given an element of choice for the task and were able to make a selection to suit their own ideas, thoughts and designs. Identifying the process that is required to construct most of the things that they take for granted was an eye opener for many children. Many believed that someone just had an idea and that was made into the finished product. The multi-step process was not even considered.

Macquarie Fields Public School 3 Generating and developing ideas As an introduction to the task we examined everyday items in the classroom that could be improved, such as pencil sharpeners, pencil cases etc and discussed what and why these improvements could be made. A second task was to look at jewellery from rainforests world wide and use as a point of discussion. Following this discussion, we examined jewellery that might be found or worn by the everyday person. These included jewellery worn by stars and icons recognised by the children who were both men and women. The music and movie stars were the most popular and easily recognisable for the children (lots of discussion and ideas). After examining the various types of jewellery, we used a Venn diagram to identify similarities and differences.

Macquarie Fields Public School 4 The greatest difficulty for this task was the motivation of the boys. They saw this task as being a task exclusively for the girls, despite the images of Eminem, 50 Cent and Puff Daddy. Their ‘bling’ was seen as exciting, however not a single boy completed the task designing their own jewellery. It meant that I needed to adjust or widen the brief to allow them to perform the task. As a follow on, the children discussed ways in which an item could be improved that would be useful and relevant to their everyday life – whilst incorporating the design process. Football cards were very popular within our school and many of the boys opted to design a way of carrying their football cards. Part of their design brief was to carry and protect their cards during their day at school. It needed to be secure and to keep their cards in almost perfect condition. Many succeeded in this task with differing degrees of achievement.

Macquarie Fields Public School 9 Teacher reflection The greatest challenge for me was to encourage and challenge all students equally. It was difficult to find the point needed to motivate the boys. They were interested in the introduction, but became concerned that the idea about men and jewellery was very much female oriented and not a suitable choice. For the girls they loved the idea of making their own jewellery and went to great lengths to do the 3Rs. Many took incorporated designs as seen in different cultures from around the world. The variation to the task allowed many boys to rethink the brief and to examine their current situation and determine what it is that they are currently doing that could be improved. Many ideas were thrown around in small groups which in turn provided a great place for those who were struggling for ideas to be inspired. This process allowed the students to work closely together to share and discuss the problems that they were facing and to give suggestions to those who were having difficulty. It was excellent for talking and listening. Think, think, think and rethink some more! To do this task over I would spend more time on the design sketching as the students sketches were not as accurate as I would have liked to see. They were lacking any sense of 3D and depth. I was quite pleased with the reflection as provided by the students as many answers were honest and thoughtful.
