Laduma Technology Projects celebrates the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa. It offers a variety of Technology projects with a soccer theme for Foundation Phase learners, and includes fun activities for boys and girls, irrespective of background or experience. The projects will encourage the learners' excitement about this major sporting event, yet are fresh and relevant enough to be used in the classroom after 2010. This resource makes a valuable addition to the Foundation Phase teacher's repertoire for teaching Technology, where so little material is available. All three content areas for Technology Learning Outcome 2 are covered (Structures, Processing, and Systems and Control), and the Learning Outcomes, Assessment Standards and rubrics for each project are provided.
