Lesson Plans for teachers

All you need to turn your students into 3D Printing experts. Our curriculum lesson plans have been created by current classroom teachers for teachers. From beginner lesson plans targeted for 11-13 year olds, to intermediate lesson plans for age ranges 14 - 16, the learnbylayers curriculum will teach your classes all they need to know about 3D Printing. All lesson plans include fully editable teaching and learning resources such as power points, lesson worksheet tasks with accompanying answer sheets, homework tasks with answer sheets, design challenges, video tutorials and final assessments with example files to 3D print to support the delivery of the curriculum. The design challenges are differentiated to allow all students to be challenged in lesson regardless of their ability. Students will learn 3D CAD and how to create their own models as part of the curriculum. There are over 100 lesson resources published that allow the lessons to be taught straight 'out of the box' with minimal planning needed.

Learn By Layer Story

Created by teachers for teachers. Learnbylayers was started in the summer of 2017 as a project to help teachers access high quality educational resources. In the short amount of time that we have been running we have helped thousands of students with our 3D Printing curriculum. Teachers understand how lessons run and what work's with children. That's why all the learnbylayers curriculum has been written by current teachers for teachers. With technology advancing at such a rapid pace it is vital that school children are taught these new skills as early as possible. 3D Printing will change design and manufacturing like computers and coding have changed how we operate every day. That's why it's imperative that children are taught about this ground breaking technology. For the teaching of 3D Printing to expand it is vital that it is driven from the front line, that is why our teachers have been 3D Printing in the classroom for years. These resources are tried, tested and validated by current teachers form the UK. The resources can be tailored to any curriculum as they can be fully edited and come with a life time license.
