What is Project-Based Learning for Children?

At My Place, project-based learning is at the heart of our early childhood education. We believe that project-based learning stimulates learners in hands-on activities that allows them to build their own knowledge and develop tangible products.

What is project-based learning?

All project-based learning begins with a fundamental, driving question – for example, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” My Place encourages students to ask questions and find solutions by collaborating with their peers.

Here’s an example of how we would take this driving question and discover the answers together.

  1. We encourage critical thinking by reading books about occupations such as firefighters, teachers, doctors, nurses, and more.

  2. We involve our community by asking family and other community members to talk to students about their occupations.

  3. We discuss what we learned while creating fun crafts based on occupations we learned about.

  4. We share the fun and learning by sending school families an occupation-related craft everyone can work on together.

  5. We get technology involved by programming our robot to repeat our occupation-based vocabulary words for students to practice and learn.

What are the benefits of project-based learning?

Project-based learning helps children think critically, ask questions, engage their creativity, and learn in a collaborative environment. Rather than learning something in isolation, they can connect their learning to the world around them. This deepens their classroom education and teaches them fundamental skills for lifelong learning.
