Instructional Management Plan
Hands-on Activities

In addition to Internet-based activities, it is important to include related hands-on activities in a project whenever possible. The hands-on activities could serve as an opener for the topic of study or could help to reinforce learning at a later point in the project.

EXAMPLE:  Students using the Wonderful World of Weather project gather real time weather data from the Internet and then build and use a variety of weather instruments to collect weather data at their school.
