Summary

Much can be gained by providing preschool children opportunities to work on projects. Projects invite children's participation at various developmental levels; strengthen their capacity and disposition for involvement in work requiring sustained effort; and are ideal for mixed age, ability, or linguistic groups. Teachers have a central role to play in stimulating and suggesting projects as well as in organizing the flow of work and assignment of tasks. Several dimensions, reflected by the following questions, should be considered in project planning: Is the central topic or feature vivid to children? Are opportunities provided for a small group to act out roles? Can new elements be added? Do children have sufficient interest and experience to enable them to "get inside" roles and act them out with feeling? Is the project locally and culturally salient? Is the project reasonably feasible, given particulars of setting, space, and available materials? Finally, is the topic and associated learning really worthwhile? In addition to the ways project work makes developmental sense, such activities also make cultural sense, enabling children to come to grips with their culture by rebuilding it and acting out the many roles they see around them.
