Students in grades 3–5 may be interested in exploring some foundational information about earthquakes and tsunamis, changes in the Earth's surface brought about by fault activity, or interesting and unusual bits of information about earthquakes. They may also be interested in discovering more about Japan's physical and cultural geography or in learning how to protect people and property during a natural disaster.

The process of constructing the bridges required meticulous work by a team of students--who only had pasta to work with! The Bridge Model The second component of the Bridge Project was the construction of a bridge model. Students organized themselves into groups of three or four. Ms.
Restaurants are required to post nutritional information for all of their foods, including the number of calories. But what does “540 calories” really mean? In this lesson we’ll rewrite the McDonald’s nutritional labels. Instead of calories, we’ll classify foods based on how long you’d have to exercise to burn them off.

Collaborative project-based learning and problem-based learning in higher education: a consideration of tutor and student roles in learner-focused strategiesPrinter friendly version in PDF KEYWORDS: Collaborative Project-based Learning, Problem-based Learning, Facilitation. Introduction
Continuing on with PBL lesson ideas, here are links to dozens of language arts projects from websites that specialize in PBL. In previous posts, I provided links to math projects , PBL science lesson ideas , and social studies projects . I would suggest taking a look at the projects in these other subjects as well, because virtually all of them include language arts elements. The projects listed below have been labeled as primarily language arts projects by the providers. ** Free registration is required to view complete project details at ePals and PBL Online.

Project-based learning , or PBL, is a collaborative education style facilitated by teachers, aimed at increasing student's retention of content in a way that is directly engaging, through projects applicable to life outside of the classroom. [ 1 ] Project Based Learning was promoted by the Buck Institute for Education in the late 1990s, in response to school reform efforts of that time. [ 2 ] Project-based learning is an instructional method that provides students with complex tasks based on challenging questions or problems that involve the students' problem solving, decision making, investigative skills, and reflection that includes teacher facilitation, but not direction. PBL is focused on questions that drive students to encounter the central concepts and principles of a subject in a hands-on method.
Creating a Common Craft-style video is part of the classroom assignment. By Shelley Wright I teach in an inquiry, project-based, technology embedded classroom. A mouthful, I know. So what does that mean? To begin with, I don’t lecture.
In 2010, a second-grade class in Colorado took part in a Smithsonian online conference on environmental issues. One session was on the exploding population of deer in the United States, a subject that really hit home. Their town of about nine thousand had been overrun in the last few years by hundreds of mule deer. The conference was one in a series that challenged students not only to learn about the environment, but also to take action to improve it. After researching the larger issue of deer populations and environmental change, the second-graders began looking for ways to educate the rest of the town and to offer possible local solutions.

Introduction [ edit ] In the first section, a literature review on project-based learning (PjBL) is presented, including a definition, theoretical foundations, features, implementing steps, and a list of benefits as well as disadvantages, to provide a basic foundation for understanding how PjBL is used in language learning. In this section of the chapter, I refer to project-based language learning (PjBLL). Not only is the basic concept of PjBLL discussed and elaborated upon, but also it's implementation as well as effectiveness. Scenario 1 In Ms.
Donna Moss, Arlington (VA) Education and Employment Program (REEP) Carol Van Duzer, National Center for ESL Literacy Education December 1998 Project-based learning is an instructional approach that contextualizes learning by presenting learners with problems to solve or products to develop. For example, learners may research adult education resources in their community and create a handbook to share with other language learners in their program, or they might interview local employers and then create a bar graph mapping the employers, responses to questions about qualities they look for in employees. This digest provides a rationale for using project-based learning with adult English language learners, describes the process, and gives examples of how the staff of an adult English as a second language (ESL) program have used project-based learning with their adult learners at varying levels of English proficiency.
