Project Materials

    The materials necessary to implement an Internet-based project may include traditional materials used for special projects and lessons like poster paper and magic markers but these projects may also require materials not typically used in traditional projects. Teachers need to consider whether special equipment will be needed to carry out experiments and whether computer material like disks will be necessary to transfer information. If items need to be specially ordered, this must be done well enough in advance so as not to impact on the project start date.


A teacher is interested in participating in the Global Water Sampling Project because water studies are part of the school's environmental science curriculum. However, first the teacher must see if there are any equipment requirements or cost limitations. The teacher reviews recommended equipment lists (if provided) and identifies a list of materials necessary to participate in the project. If equipment must be purchased, the teacher ensures that there will be time and money for this before committing to do the project.

Consider these questions as you review your project.

  • What materials will be required for the project you have selected? 

  • How will you obtain them?

  • How much will they cost?
