BLENDING ART AND SCIENCE AS THE FOUNDATION FOR INQUIRY BASED PROJECTS

 

An Early Childhood Workshop

By Dr. Michelle Rupiper

 

Workshop Overview

Inquiry-based projects encourage young children to learn deeply about topics and develop the intellectual dispositions required for academic success. In this workshop we will discuss and plan integrating rich, inquiry-based projects throughout the curriculum. Special emphasis will be placed on utilizing science and art as key curricular areas to enhance learning across domains. Connections will be made to linking projects to curricular goals and standards and best practices I observed on my visits to the schools of Reggio Emilia and Pistoia, Italy.

 

Workshop Aim

Participants will learn how to plan effective inquiry-based projects for young children emphasizing science and art as a way to enhance learning across all domains.

• Realize the components of effective inquiry-based projects.

• Understand how art and science curriculum can enhance learning in all developmental domains.
