For Inquiry this term we are thinking about the design and production of our costumes for the school concert. This is a Technology unit that incorporates creativity and the idea of being fit for purpose: our costumes have to be fit for the purpose so need certain attributes. This proved to be a bit tricky for the children to get their heads around so we took a little detour.
We looked at the features of tissues and paper hand towels and what these features made them fit for. We had fun trying to use tissues to dry our hands and paper towels to blow our noses. Now we know what fit for purpose means!!
