7TH GRADE TECH-ED
Course Description: Students will spend approximately 30 days in tech-ed as 7th graders. They will study about 3-view drawings, as a means of visual communication. Students will learn how industry uses drawings to communicate ideas. Students will produce several 3-view drawings complete with dimensions and notes. This will take approximately 15 days. The remainder of the time will be spent learning how to use many different hand and power tools correctly and safely. Each student will build a birdhouse. Having each student build a birdhouse provides each student with the opportunity to encounter and use tools they may not encounter on their own. Students will be required to complete a research project on a bird they may be interested in building a birdhouse for. Students will be evaluated on all worksheets, homework, and projects.
