It was time for children to recollect their learnings from the researching phase and revisit their entire journey. They shared their feelings, likes and dislikes about the project journey. Teachers and parents observed and archived children's ideas and expressions through a children's web, pictures and videos. Children created blueprints and actual models of the animal on which they researched to communicate their learning.
Teachers created a children's web to document children's sharing from throughout the project. It showcases their growing vocabulary and understanding from the start to the end of the project.
