ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS

We start this very important unit with the BASICS OF ELECTRICITY AND ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS:

And now, you can correct the fill in the blanks activity (thanks Cassandra!):


PRACTICES: SIMULATION OF CIRCUITS WITH CROCODILE CLIPS:
  1. Save the document Practices with Crocodile Clips in your computer (and print it at home!!).
  2. Simulate the circuits in the previous document and answer the questions in your notebook/photocopies ((if you are using your notebook, you have to write down the question too).
  3. If you have to do some practices at home, you can use the program Yenka, instead of Crocodile Clips (you can download Yenka from this website)
(these practices are based on the ones made by Manuel Torres; check his blog for information about these practices and the program Crocodile Clips http://elprofesormanuel.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/crocodile-clips-tecnologia-3%C2%BA-e-s-o/).

ACTIVITIES / HOMEWORK
You will be asked to do these activities at home:



PROJECTS (2)

This is the list of requirements for the project we did in the second and third terms:


These are the sections that your project report must have:




EARTH DAY / TREE DAY

As in the rest of the school 22th of february to learn and think about the importance of the trees and the environment. The activity that we will do in Technology is about wood:


MECHANISMS

The pulley

We are working with the following worksheet after watching the video



The lever

We will study how a lever works with this worksheet. You will have to watch the two following videos to answer the questions in the worksheet.



STRUCTURES

What is a structure? What important characteristics should a structure have?

We start this new unit with a project that must be done at home. See the instructions in this document:


You will have to bring the cubes to your class next Monday, December 3rd.

After doing the experiment, you will have to fill in the following worksheet:


Types of structures

In order to learn the most important types of structures, we are going to do this activity:
1. Watch the following pictures of very different objects:














2. Classify the pictures above in 7 different groups, according to the type of its structure. In each of the seven groups you have to put 5 pictures. (you can number the pictures from 1 to 35 so you can put 5 numbers in each group).
3. What is the most important characteristic in each group? Write a sentence explaining the similarities in the structures in each group.

Demolishing structures!

And if you want to get some fun with structures, you can try to demolish some of them with this game. Let's see who is able to reach the final level!

PROJECTS (1)

First term

The workshop is a special classroom, with many materials, tools and machines. That is why it is very important to follow some special rules that complement the ones we have in the rest of the school. Here you have them:

In this worksheet you will find some activities related to the steps to do a project and to build a wooden object:


After identifying the requirements (step 1), researching about them (step 2) and designing a solution for them (step 3), this is the process sheet we use to do the planning in our projects:


These are some pictures of the projects made by the students in 1ºA:





HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY

In this presentation we will find out what the basics of TV are (Thanks, Kenneth!):















TECHNICAL MATERIALS

In this presentation we will learn why we choose different materials to make different things, and we will apply it to some examples around us:
























What materials would you choose to make a pan, a book a wire and a jacket? Here you have the solutions:
























After watching the previous presentation and doing the activities proposed there, you will have to do this crossword puzzle about the most important properties in materials:



What is this subject about?



































What do you need and how are you going to be assessed?
