Learning starts with a central question – for example “how does a chick know it is time to hatch?” question from a 3 day student. We begin as a group thinking about what we know and what we don’t know as well as what we want to know about this question. Students and teachers identify resources that may help us to answer these questions – perhaps books, web searches, fieldtrips or interviews of knowledgeable people. In this manner the project begins to unfold. Children document their learning throughout the process or near the end of the process as appropriate.
