A Place to Connect Teachers and Support Children

The Weather Project

Another project is under our belt and we have our evidence to show from it in Powerpoint format. After each project I like to reflect on various things.  I thought I’d share those with you as well. Often times when someone comes to visit in the classroom, I’ve heard, “you make it look so easy!” I also added steps below to how we make it work in our classroom or your house! Click the link to see our work: The Weather Project

How to do project work at school/home:

  • start small
  • always use an experience the children can have that is hands-on, meaningful, real, and relevant  (the easter bunny is not real)
  • be organized
  • reflect
  • ask questions
  • don’t be afraid
  • If at first you don’t succeed try, try again!

What went well:

  • the children lead most of the project and asked for me to put specific things on the lesson plan
  • the children learned the types of clouds and shared this information with their families
  • the project gave us many opportunities to sketch  and use our imagination

What didn’t go well:

  • wish we had more time to finish the project
  • would like to have gone in-depth in more topics
  • did not have enough hands on experiences with snow
