Didactic material accompanying the product Class Set Statics

Lesson plans, tasks and solutions in English and Portuguese

Editable format of the accompanying didactic material

Our provided learning material can be used directly in the classroom. Nevertheless, many teachers have the need to individualize the tasks and solutions in order to suit the particular application in the best possible way. The task and solution sheets are therefore deliberately provided in Word format. This allows you to customize and modify them as you wish before you start printing. 


Structure according to topics

Our lesson plans are structured according to different sub-areas. This allows you to respond specifically to requirements and teach exactly those topics that you consider to be target-oriented or that are specified to you.
The fischertechnik Class Set Statics can be used to fulfill all the lesson plans provided.

The lesson plans for the various topics are offered below.

Learning goals

  • Content-related skills: Stability and strength in technical constructions, discovering correlations between load-bearing capacity and connection of construction elements, constructing buildings and load-bearing structures experimentally, getting to know functional features of load-bearing structures, trusses, system of beam and support, recognising the skeleton construction method in various structures in their environment, understanding compression and tensile forces, the system of triangular bracing, transferring features of a stable construction to a movable one, stability/balance, two-sided lever arm.
  • Process-related skills: Problem-solving/ being creative.
  • Mathematical skills: Logical and strategic thinking.
  • Personal and social skills: finding a solution together in a team.
  • Language communication skills: Development of specialist terms.


The Class Set Statics provides a low-threshold approach to important statics basics for teaching general science at primary level. The primary learning objective is static-constructive building and to sharpen the children’s view of the static and constructive facts that surround them. Construction, research and reflection are encouraged in a playful and practical way. Working alone or in teams, pupils build simple models.

Time required

Individual topics should usually be able to be dealt with within one school lesson. The time required for experimenting, evaluation and discussion is estimated at approx. 45 minutes individually.

Group model

Large models are impressive and are especially fun for young explorers. That's why we still have a group model up our sleeve! The whole class builds a large bridge together that boasts a length of 2.75 meters. The building instructions can be downloaded below.
