Breaker Space

Artifacts:  Pictures/journal of your deconstruction--uploaded to classroom in the ARTIFACTS assignment or handed in to Mrs. Pennington with a hard copy.  You should work on the project for the full 8 days.  The number of items you deconstruct  will depend on the intricacy of the items and your description.  

Goal:  To take apart and document the inside workings of an electrical device.  

Once you have picked your device to deconstruct, you will find a website that describe how one works.  You will jot down information on your index card about the workings of your device.  

Tools:  There are sets of precision flat head and Phillips head screwdrivers to use.  

Process:  You should utilize your class box to hold all materials as you deconstruct your item.  Mrs. Pennington will go through your materials when you have finished to see if we can save the items for later use.  

Artifact Choices:
1. Make a detailed drawing of the inside of the device and its parts.  Do some research to determine what 15 individual parts are and what role they play.  Add that information to your drawing(s).
2. Take pictures of the deconstruction.  Use the pictures to create a digital or hand-created poster that documents the layout and what 15 of the individual parts are and what role they play.
3. Make a video of the deconstruction process and what 15 individual parts are and what role they play.
4.  Create a Google Slide to share your pieces.  Below you will find a PowerPoint that you can either copy the structure and create your own, or download it and upload it to the Artifacts page and then you should be able to create your own Google Slide from it.  You will just want to duplicate the slide to create all your slides.
