Group size and management of the project
The kit contains enough materials and equipment for a whole class of 30 students to be fully occupied for at least a whole day of intensive practical activity but there are various ways to deliver the project and combine other classroom activities along the way. The project could then occupy a whole term if required and be the focal point for a bigger project altogether.
Additional materials can be added to extend the project.
The project can be teacher-led in a step by step fashion, following the instructions provided in Powerpoint presentation format, or be handed over completely to the whole group after subgroups and tasks have been negotiated.
Once up and running it is even possible to allow two or three students to project manage the whole project by allocating jobs and checking on progress. The teacher can then step back and assess progress by the whole group or individuals - and help keep an eye on the time!
See the ‘Stadium Project’ pages for full details of modes of delivery of the project and lots of great cross-curricular activities based around the stadium and the Olympic Games.
