A Place to Connect Teachers and Support Children

Phase One

Project Work has three phases.  The first phase has several different attributes to it.  This is the stage where you determine officially what your project is and begin to collect data about the connection the children have with the topic, the questions they have, the information they know, and the direction you will be going.  Check out our phase one work below.

 Makayla (5.9) draws two pictures.  The first is a picture of a mother and child.  She drew and labeled each picture and created a pacifier.  “Babies need pacifiers if they are sad.”  Her second drawing is a baby learning to walk to his/her mom.
