Description

Our Assembly Line lesson plan introduces students to the history of the assembly line and its use by Henry Ford in the manufacturing of the automobile. Many students are accustomed to using products and taking for granted the manufacturing of those products but do not understand the assembly process. During this lesson, students are asked to construct paper dolls on their own from start to finish and then try making them in a team where every person has a set task; this helps illustrate how much more efficient using an assembly line is when compared to a person or machine who creates a product from start to finish on their own. Students are also asked to match terms with their correct definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define assembly line, discuss its history, and explain the use of it and the influence it had on the manufacturing of products in America.

Assembly Line

My class enjoyed the video and learning activities to go with the unit. The only challenging part of the lesson was deciding where to cut out the little man's shirt/coat. I wish the outline had been solid, rather than detailed. It worked will as an activity to show how assembly lines improve production. I will definitely use it again, but I will modify the shirt/coat.
