I made this to launch an experimental teaching topic where pupils had to incorporate skills from Science, ICT and Design Technology lessons into a unit on biotechnology. They started at basic photosynthesis and ended up designing a fully biodegradable sandwich carton. Pupils worked in groups and I hardly had to do any teaching...just 'prodded' them in the right direction.

At the end of the unit pupils presented their work in their groups and created pages of their own on the website. They also uploaded their homeworks onto this site. Feedback was really positive...they needed more time however. The area where feedback was not so positive was about working in groups. Pupils were not used to working in groups for such a long period of time but some really worked well together and that really showed when they presented to the class.

Contact me if you would like the lesson outlines.
