3) What are your thoughts about having projects in every subject? In what ways are project-type assessments more difficult, interesting, challenging or meaningful than traditional ways of showing what you know? Cite an example or two to support your answer.

Doing projects in every subject is fun as we get to learn different things. A dateline for project is a must but they should give us time as we have many projects up on. Projects requiring experiments are fun and interesting but it gets difficult when the experiment does not work. It is much better than the traditional way of showing us what we know as we get the real ‘live’ prove. By doing that, we understand it more clearly. Doing experiments also need teamwork. Teamwork is very important in projects as everybody plays a part. Going on a fieldtrip is like experiments as it makes the project easier and we get the ‘live’ experience. Fieldtrip not only make us enjoy ourselves, it also get us to know more about the things around us. The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve trip is a good example. We not only enjoyed ourselves there, we get to know about the nature and see many creatures that we never see before. After going to the trip, it makes our project easier. If we did not go to the trip, by just researching through the Internet, I don’t think we will learn and enjoy ourselves that much.
