Safety Rules and Hygiene

This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Design and Technology for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically it looks at safety rules and hygiene. It is one of 10 quizzes to help you with designing and making useful things, and finding out about how things are made.

This quiz looks at some of the rules around safety and staying healthy. Any practical or physical subject can have its hidden dangers, but Design and Technology involves using a lot of tools, electricity and some machines, so there are more things to watch out for.
