How to Access Student Templates

1.  Students click on a template

We have provided templates for students to respond to learning tasks.

2. The template will open and students select the USE TEMPLATE button.

When students click on the use template button, it will open as a google doc, which they can save to their google classroom or google drive account.

What if my students don’t have a google drive account or don’t use

google classroom?


We recommend students copy the 3 module folders before the challenge begins and save
them in a location designated by you.



Familiarise yourself with the learning tasks within each module and set completion dates for each module for students.


Talk through each module and learning task with students and ensure they can find and navigate through the pages.


Ensure students have saved or know how to save the templates into their own folder.
