These project ideas are designed to assist in gathering evidence of students’ learning in relation to selected learning outcomes in the specific strand up to that point.  The project ideas are also designed to offer choice and to cater for a range of interests and abilities among students. 

To allow for differentiation, some project ideas are more challenging than others, but all project ideas, and the subsequent record of projects should support meaningful learning.

The suggested project activities do not represent a definitive list.  Ideally, projects are agreed in consultation with students to ensure that they will be seen as being meaningful and relevant to them.
