Project Based Learning
At Discovery we offer Project Based learning (PBL) to help students learn real-life skills. Projects motivate learners to gain knowledge along with application of concepts from their curricular subjects. This also gives them a chance to apply and practice skills they learn to personally relevant and real world situations.
Students of Grade 1 did a project on Community Helpers. The project began with a driving question “How can we become an effective member of the community?” The students came up with driving questions about community helpers which made them realize how important the service of these community helpers are for the community and what they would like to become when they grow up.
Colourful elements always fascinate the children. by keeping their interest in mind, poster making was also included in the project. The students made a huge 3D model of their community in which they made houses, schools, hospitals, parks and shops.
Lastly, the students dressed up as different community helpers on Culmination Day to present the different professions and their role and importance.
