Non-GCSE – Lesson 8 – Start your own project

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

This is the first of two and a half lessons (2 hours 30 minutes) in which learners will apply what they have learnt about the project life cycle to a small project. They will initiate, plan, execute, and evaluate a project for a business called Team Outdoor Obstacles. The requirements of this project will be similar to Delicious Desserts. However, the spreadsheet element will be much simpler and require the insertion of formula on a sales sheet.

If necessary, omit some of the execution of the project so that learners can complete the project in the given time, or spread these lessons over four lessons if your setting allows.
