Our emergent curriculum approach will eventually lead us to PROJECTS! These are extended, in-depth investigations of a topic, suggested by the children’s interest. Projects involve children in conducting research on phenomena and events worth learning about in their own environments.
In the process, they will pose questions, generate theories and predictions, interview experts, conduct experiments. We will usually finish the project with some kind of culminating event or creation that will symbolize all that the children have learned and give them a way to share this with you. We will ask parents to help us by contributing materials or expertise related to our project topic or helping us to plan the culminating activity.
