Overview

The Lesson Plans below are intended for 5 weeks each and materials will be provided.

Explanation

Each Carpentry lesson must start with a visual reference and an explanation of what you are creating. IE: reference what the item is, how it can be used, etc…

We urge teachers to show examples or show off their skills. Feel free to bring in a USB which they can plug into a whiteboard at the school in your classroom to keep up for the children to reference if you have visual examples. You may also bring in your own computer or iPad to show the children the images which you have saved. Most schools have a secure internet system which don’t allow teachers to search on google or Youtube so please be prepared.

Timing

  • 5 min enter class
    take jackets off, sit down, do the register and eat snacks
  • 5 min explain lesson with examples and interaction (asking questions)
  • 40 min practical lesson
  • 10 min pack up
    tidy up, put jackets on, tuck chairs in, line up

*It is important that you leave the classroom as entered* 

Pro Tip: if there is time once the children are packed up do a show and tell. Allow a few students to show and explain what they made

Leave the supplies in the storage box and store in a safe place allocated by the school
