Scottish Christians

This project will develop learners' knowledge and understanding of Christian behaviours by learning about the work and lives of a few inspirational Scottish Christians. The topic requires the learners to work independently and as part of a team on a variety of audio, visual and kinaesthetic activities which will integrate various areas of the curriculum. Ultimately, the learners will receive the opportunity to apply what they have learned throughout the project, in a real-life context when they are required to work together, to organise and manage a fundraising event which will benefit those less fortunate than themselves.
