St. Luke Projects

Projects evolve based on the children's interests, where our educators act as co-learners. Projects are documented in three phases; generating ideas by making a plan, implementing the plan and reflecting on the learning.

Preschool  Completed: May 2016 RECEs: Gabi, Shannon, Steph Objectives: To further explore the children's interest of dinosaurs, which developed into our project of paleontology. The children wanted to gain a better understanding of how big they were and how did they become extinct.          The project started when the preschoolers became interested in dinosaurs after Luke brought his in from home to show the others. The children began talking about dinosaurs and wanted to find out what they were called and what had happened to them. We wanted to compare the size of our feet to the size of one Brontosaurus footprint. Even all our shoes combined, the Brontosaurus's foot is still bigger! The children constructed a volcano using newspaper, flour and water, and then painted it as they worked as a team. Click here to read the complete documentation on our project
