Content description
Identify how people create familiar designed solutions and consider sustainability to meet personal and local community needs
  1. exploring how local products, services and environments are designed by people for a purpose and meet social needs, for example the range of shelters provided for the public in a local community; graphical displays to market school and community events
  2. asking questions about natural and managed environments and impacts on them when selecting materials, tools and equipment when designing and making products, for example harvesting products from the school garden and using recycled clothing
  3. making design decisions based on personal and family needs, for example comparing recipes to suit available cooking facilities such as cooking in the bush compared to cooking in a kitchen
