This article describes a spontaneous project that emerged from a group of 3- and 4-year-old children in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. The article describes how the teachers adapted the classroom and curriculum to meet the diverse needs of children who were evacuees, as well as those children who were affected in other ways by the hurricanes--Katrina, then three weeks later, Rita. Photographs and other documentation chronicle children's work and learning over the course of the project. Parents' comments and teachers' reflections are also included.
