Manufacture of Cheese
Learners explore how cheese is manufactured. For this product manufacturing lesson, students identify the steps in cheese making and what the hazard analysis critical control points are for manufacturing cheese.
Manufacture of Ground Beef
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.
Manufacturing Technologies: Making a Picture Frame
Learners 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.
Cosmetic Products Evaluation
Students evaluate different cosmetic products. For 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.
Materials and Manufacturing
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.
Exploring Manufacturing - Grade Four Interdisciplinary Lesson
Fourth graders study Ohio's natural resources and commercial manufacturing. In this commercial manufacturing lesson plan, 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.
Introduction to Manufacturing
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.
Careers in the Manufacturing Industry
Ninth graders will explore manufacturing careers. For this career lesson, 9th graders will explore career options through an interactive video-conference with an engineering professor or professional.
How Products are Manufactured?
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.
Printed Circuit Board Layout and Manufacture
In this electrical worksheet, learners 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.
The Properties of Clay
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.
The Popcorn Package
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.
New Toy Project
Young scholars 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.
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.
Careers in the Manufacturing Industry
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.
Manufacturing in Northern Ireland
In this manufacturing learning exercise, students 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.
Computer chips manufacturing. Mazimizing the number of die per silicon wafer.
Students explore the manufacture of silicon wafers. In this Algebra I/Algebra II/Geometry lesson, students simulate the process of building square semiconductor die on a circular silicon wafer. Students investigate the relationship between the radius of the circle and the number of usable square die.
Chemistry of Iron and Charcoal Manufacturing in PA
Students examine the historical purpose of the forests in Pennsylvania and investigate how the iron manufacturing process works. In this chemistry lesson students write the chemical formula for making charcoal.
Something Out of Nothing
Explore the world of product manufacturing with your class. They describe the types of manufacturing and how each one is important to the economy. A pretest, post-test, and worksheet are included.
