KS2 D&T Lesson Plan – Study Mechanical Systems By Making Pop-Up Books

Key Stage



Years 3-6

Children never seem to tire of the magic of moving picture books. They are often the most worn and well- used books in the school library and children enjoy bringing their own ‘lift the flap’ and ‘pull the tab’ books into school.

‘Mechanisms’ is a requirement in KS1 D&T, progressing to more sophisticated ‘mechanical systems’ in KS2. While the technical knowledge associated with this strand of D&T can seem daunting, projects focusing on moving pictures created with paper and card provide an affordable, accessible and educationally sound way to develop children’s understanding.
