Book Owls by Faberdashery

This week, we are featuring these lovely little Book Owls shared on YouMagine by Faberdashery.

The book owls are a nice simple and quick print, perfect for younger pupils to use for the Describe It and the Describe and Draw It activities.

The owls could also provide stimulus for a bookmark design project where students are tasked with designing and printing their own bookmarks using the Improve It activity as a starting point. Pupils can then use the Advertise It activity resources to design an advertisement for their completed products. They could maybe even produce a batch of their designs to sell to other pupils as an enterprise project.

About Object of the Week

“Object of the Week” is a fully resourced open-ended classroom project developed by the CREATE Education Project to¬†provide regular¬†opportunities throughout the year for students to explore the world of 3D printing.

A series of stand-alone classroom activities have been developed to support the project. The activities allow students to:

  • use their imagination
  • develop speaking and listening skills
  • develop descriptive and creative writing skills
  • be creative
  • develop research, evaluation and presentation skills
  • explore future careers
  • learn how real life problems are solved
  • develop their own solutions

The open-ended activities are designed to be cross-curricular, for use across of range of ages/levels and weekly objects are selected to cover a range of applications and subject areas. Some objects may provide a platform for introducing or expanding on a specific topic area or as a springboard to a class project. Ideas for taking it further will be provided where applicable.

Resources include a comprehensive Teacher Guide which provides an overview of each activity and suggestions for how to deliver the activity in class. PowerPoint Interactive Classroom Activity Slides and a set of Student Worksheets are also available to support the activities.
