Classroom Project Explores Pipes and Plumbing
Our latest project example, “Where Does the Water Go?” Investigating Pipes and Plumbing, took place in an inclusive early childhood classroom in Illinois. The children observed pipes both inside and outside the school, talked to plumbers, and constructed their own pipes. The IEL website has many examples of project work. Let us know if you have a project you want to share. We also invite you to join the Project Approach Facebook Group to discuss best practices for carrying out project work with young children.
