We believe Project Based Learning is an effective method of teaching and engaging students. There are five essential elements that are conducive to learning. (1) The teacher's role is to act as a guide. (2) Students must have access to hands-on activities that are REAL WORLD. (3) Students should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. (4) Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment. (5) Students must present their work to adults and leaders in their community.
