Hi Travis,
One exercise I do is to bring in some magazines (as glossy and pic-filled as I can scavenge) and ask them to manually cut and paste images, ads etc  that illustrate various elements and principles of design, and to annotate the image, pointing out the various principles/elements shown. 
Sometimes I get them to make these into mini posters to go up at home for revision, other times in their visual diary.
They could do this electronically but then they just look up the element or principle and nab the images being used to illustrate the particular website.

Also, haven't heard back from the VCAA about actionscript 3.0 yet but have
adapted some assessment tasks for both the principles of design/webpage
assessment combo and the 2D animation/scripting combo and also written
tutorials on interactivity for them so if anyone is interested, give me a

Have a great weekend
