Possible learning experiences

A range of learning experiences is suggested. Teachers should select those that best meet the learning needs of their students.

For safety reasons, ensure that students have an opportunity to acquire the prior knowledge and experience identified for each activity.

Assessment Opportunities

While all activities can be used for assessment purposes, teachers will select those that best demonstrate whether the learning needs of their students have been met. Some assessment opportunities have been identified for each learning experience, and these have been linked to suggested learning outcomes and possible learning activities by the use of bold print.
