Students spend time constructing their lanterns. At the beginning of each session the students and teacher review the lantern assessment criteria (Appendix 12 - Lanterns Assessment) to check that students keep aware of all required elements for their lantern construction. At the end of each session students take notes on their construction procedure to date. 

For example:

  1. Draw outlines of 10 centimetres by 10 centimetre squares on coloured plastic.
  2. Cut out the squares of coloured plastic.

The teacher assists when required.
