  1. 1. Helping Others<br />Mrs. Parish<br />2nd Grade<br />
  2. 2. Project-Based Learning<br />Project-Based Learning is a method of learning that gives students a chance to use the knowledge they get from lessons by relating it to real world experiences. It incorporates student centered, hands-on practices into classroom environments resulting in increased motivation and participation. The students are encouraged to use collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills. Projects can be long term, meaning they last throughout the school year, or they can be as short as a class period. Students compile information obtained through investigations and use it to perform real tasks. Results from their investigations are presented to real world professionals in presentations, reports, or newspaper articles. Project-Based Learning results in the students understanding, applying, and retaining information.<br />
  3. 3. Essential Question<br />What can I do to help others?<br />

  6. 6. Unit Summary<br />Students will be making posters that will be presented to the Kindergarten classes. The students will cut out pictures of items that are unsafe and items that are safe. For example, a picture of a walk signal will be displayed next to a picture of a do not walk signal. The students will be learning about synonyms and antonyms. <br />
  7. 7. Role of the Teacher<br />My role in the project will be to guide the students toward a variety of pictures so the groups will provide posters that have different types of information and all posters do not end up looking too similar.<br />
  8. 8. Role of the Parent<br />It would benefit your child and their group if you will look in magazines and/or the internet for pictures that can be brought to class and used for the poster project.<br />While looking for pictures, engage your child’s help and see if they can help you find pictures that they feel would benefit younger children.<br />
  9. 9. Role of the Student<br />The students will be responsible for matching each picture with another picture that has the opposite meaning. These pictures will be placed on their group poster.<br />When we as a class begin to look over the pictures, we will determine which pictures have the same meaning and which ones are opposites.<br />
