Level 1 Spatial techniques
This activity is about recognising and drawing objects from different viewpoints. It is in three sections:
- Identifying objects photographed from plan and elevation views
- Drawing 3D sketches of solids from their plan and elevation views
- Drawing plans and elevations of given objects.
Practice in converting between different metric units of length, using exercises on a worksheet, a bingo game, and a dominoes game.
Students find the volume of a variety of cuboids in real life contexts.
Helping students to recognise geometrical shapes and their properties.
Estimating lengths and measuring objects using both centimetres and millimetres.
Students measure lengths from scale drawings then use ratio scales to find the actual lengths.
Students design a new layout for the classroom, measuring the furniture, making scaled cut-outs, and placing them on a prepared plan.
Students measure dimensions from scale drawings and find the areas of rectangles and triangles. They then calculate the amount of paint needed to paint a house and its cost.
How much lawn feed is needed? Students find the perimeter and area of rectangles and shapes made from rectangles.
Students learn how to draw and format basic shapes in Word.
