Do Snails have a favourite food?



Current research demonstrates that students involved in Project Based Learning have increased interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). This is related to their involvement in working collaboratively and building a real solution to their questions.

Why Project Based Learning?

More and more classrooms are moving toward independently solving problems using Project Based Learning. This means students are able to work at their own pace and answer the things they’re most interested in. This work builds problem solving skills, independence, creates interest in a given subject, and helps them become more involved in real world issues. The ability to develop and answer thought provoking questions helps students meet with success inside and outside the classroom.

Can I identify textures just using my feet?



At Earlyminds we make Project Based Learning available to early learners. We give you the tools and materials to encourage curiosity and exploration in preparation for creating and answering questions.

How does it work?

In Project Based Learning children are encouraged to explore and discover their chosen subject. Ask their own question reflecting something they’re curious to know the answer to. Imagine what mediums to use and how to answer their question. Plan and keep a record of how they answer their question. Create their answers in any way they want. Improve by finding how to best show their answer. Share the question and answer with others.

What Will Be Included?

We give you an outline and foundational knowledge for each project, with a Title Page, a Flip Book, a Nomenclature, and Information Pictures and Labels. Then we encourage you and your child to think of questions you’d like to find the answers to. We encourage creativity and curiosity, no question is too crazy! The fun is in the discovery

Will There be Video Lessons?

With Project based Learning the child directs the progress so to predict this would be counter productive. Instead we are producing videos that actually explore the questions we’re most interested in, and publishing our discoveries to inspire you.

How Do We Start?

We have an outline that will take you from discovering the Question that starts you on your quest, and concludes with sharing your discoveries.
Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve, Share.
