## Cold Metal Project Layout and Transfer

### Lesson Plan Overview / Details

Students will learn the basics in cold metal layout and transfer

### Lesson Time

Instructional Time
2 Hours

### Objectives and Goals

• 1. Students will be able to read a sheet metal drawing
• 2. Students will be able to transfer a sheet metal drawing

### Activities in this Lesson

• Hooks / Set - Hooks / Set

Setup: Place an example of the sheet metal dustpan in the front of the room and cover it so it can not be seen by the other students. Hand out a piece of blank paper to each student.

Instructions: In a moment I am going to reveal a three dimensional object to you. As soon as that project is revealed, your challenge is to draw an accurate one dimensional picture of the the object. This object was made out of one piece of metal and the object of your drawing should be to show what it looked like before it was folded.

What questions do you have? You have min.

After min call time and have a few students share their drawings. (It is not critical that the students finish the drawings the key point is that they understand that it is challenging to look at a three dimensional object and draw it in one dimension.) Next reveal the accurate drawing and have them compare there picture to the official drawing. Tell them that the goal of today is to learn how to accurately layout and transfer sheet metal projects and that by the end of the lesson they will be able to create an accurate replica of this project on paper and three dimensionally.

• Power point covers cold metal definition, layout and transfer tools, layout and transfer techniques and cold metal layout procedures. Teacher uses power point to discuss concepts while students take notes on the attached outline.

• ppt student notes [ Download ] Notes to be handed out to students prior to starting PPT
• Transfer Time - Demo / Modeling

Setup: Draw a large square on the dry erase board that will represent the metal the students will receive for their project.

Note: As you discuss the following steps, draw them on the board for the students to see.

Hand out the sheet metal dust pan project plan.

The first step in building your sheet metal project is learning how to transfer the drawing from paper to the project. In order to accurately complete this task you should complete the attached steps.

• 1. Pass out a piece of blank paper that is larger than 16" X 12 1/2" to each student.

NOTE: If paper this size is not available scale down the provided plan to fit your paper.

2. Explain to the students that this piece of paper will represent the piece of sheet metal that they will receive.

3. Instruct the students to transfer the sheet metal project plan to their paper.

4. Move through the room and monitor participation and provide support.

• Tell the students that their ticket out the door is to write down 5 tools used in cold metal work on a half sheet of paper.

Have them hand their paper in on the way out the door.
