Students explore how cheese is manufactured. In this product manufacturing lesson, students identify the steps in cheese making and what the hazard analysis critical control points are for manufacturing cheese.
Tenth graders examine how ground beef is processed. In this process and manufacturing lesson, 10th graders recognize control points during beef processing. They will identify the proper temperature during ground beef processing and safe handling procedures.
Students explore materials used in manufacturing. In this science lesson, students investigate the suitability of building materials. Students read The Three Little Pigs and discuss the building materials used in the story.
Learners evaluate different cosmetic products. In this chemistry lesson, students determine the physical and chemical components of their samples. They perform various test such as pH, viscosity, conductivity and formulate a conclusion based on collected data.
Fifth graders carefully examine and investigate the products contained in a diaper. They particularly analyze the crystal sodium polyacrylate, a product developed for use in astronaut diapers. They follow the scientific method, forming questions, etc.
Students work in teams to develop, design, package and market a popcorn snack product. They research popcorn products and the target market, design logos and graphics for packaging and develop a marketing plan to present to the class.
Students create a new toy for a toy company. They determine the demographics of the target market and explain their decision. Students use the six steps of new product development to develop a new toy for the selected target market.
Students use cereal boxes, paint, buttons and glue to design and make a frame for a photograph. They consider the different processes involved in making the frame and discuss how their observations apply to manufacturing systems that are used to produce factory-made goods.
Fourth graders study Ohio's natural resources and commercial manufacturing. In this commercial manufacturing lesson, 4th graders examine the natural resources of Ohio, and determine how they let the state participate in domestic and international trade. They make paper, research mass production of paper, and complete all pre and post-assessments.
Sixth graders create a simple product on an assembly line. In this manufacturing lesson, 6th graders define mass production and how it changed life. Students take part in an activity to understand the roles involved in successfully manufacturing a product. Students reflect on what they've learned.
Ninth graders will explore manufacturing careers. In this career lesson, 9th graders will explore career options through an interactive video-conference with an engineering professor or professional.
Sixth graders comprehend the difference between mass production and custom manufacturing. They have a basic understanding on how items go from a raw material to a manufactured finished product. Students have an understanding of the business side of manufacturing.
In this electrical worksheet, students answer a series of  7 open-ended questions. Students explain the use of terms used in circuit board layout and manufacturing in order to answer the questions. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
Fourth graders explore commercial manufacturing in Ohio using the state's natural resources and investigate products that allow Ohio to participate in domestic and international trade. To enhance the lesson, 4th graders try custom paper manufacturing and apply the process of trouble-shooting to solve problems in the manufacturing process.
Ninth graders explore career options in the manufacturing industry. This lesson's strength lies in its connections between the world of school and the world of work. Students explore these career options through an interactive video-conference with an engineering professor or professional who answers student-generated questions.
For this manufacturing worksheet, learners match words from a word bank to one of two pictures showing work environments, categorize jobs under the categories of primary, secondary, and tertiary, then write short descriptions about the various steps in the process of manufacturing potato chips.
Learners explore the manufacture of silicon wafers.  In this Algebra I/Algebra II/Geometry lesson plan, students simulate the process of building square semiconductor die on a circular silicon wafer.  Learners investigate the relationship between the radius of the circle and the number of usable square die.
Young scholars examine the historical purpose of the forests in Pennsylvania and investigate how the iron manufacturing process works.  For this chemistry lesson students write the chemical formula for making charcoal.
Delve deeper into currency exchange theory using Sal's hypothetical global trade scenario involving the Chinese Yuan and the US dollar. He references goods manufactured and sold in the countries using supply and demand principles, explaining how a currency could appreciate and depreciate. The focus here is to explain that if there is a trade imbalance the exchange rate for the currencies involved will change accordingly.
Sixth graders determine the physical properties of clay by examining ceramic works of art. They evaluate local soil samples for suitability for sculpting and compare clay taken from soil to manufactured clay.
