Concluding the Project
We initiated the Phase III by clearing the doubts and myths of children relating to Animals after the research done in Phase II. They recalled the whole project journey and also talked about the activities and the processes they liked the most and what they disliked about it. According to the blue print and discussion, with self-selected materials they made their respective models.
Children shared their prior knowledge and new learning throughout the project. This was represented in the form of a web by the teachers to capture the progression of their knowledge throughout the project.
