  6. 6. Project Based Learning Example Students in a 3rd grade class are learning about the environment with a lesson that ties into Earth Day. Together as a class they decide to build a class garden. As the progression of the garden continues, each student will record their own findings and observations in a journal. In groups students will assume a specific responsibility/job that pertains to the garden. Once the gardens progression/growth is clear and is fully visible of changes the teacher will constructed a blog page on which students will share their journal posts, pictures that they have taken, and other information that will be worth sharing. Once everything is posted there in the class blog via comments/personal posts, each student will make their own personal wiki page sharing and reflecting on their role in the class garden and how they either would change/make the experience better.
