Structures

DT Structures: explore how strong structures are constructed and used.

DT structures lesson planning packs from PlanBee include detailed teacher's notes, slides, resources and practical activities for building structures and exploring ways of strengthening, stiffening and reinforcing them. 

Learning how to make purposeful products which are strong and sturdy is at the heart of primary Design and Technology teaching and learning in KS1 and KS2. These complete schemes of work include advice for helping children design, develop, make, strengthen and reinforce structures within broader design projects such as making picture frames, musical instruments or prototype models.
