Assessment task 2: Curriculum links and rubric

This assessment task is designed to be conducted during Sequence 12. In completing the task students will draw on the knowledge they have built up over the past 11 learning sequences. This assessment task requires students to construct two dioramas showing the differences between the two landscapes depicted in Mirror and to write a sentence highlighting the similarities and differences in their dioramas.
