The Baby Project
Harden, Darby L.; Verdeyen, Tasha B.
Early Childhood Research & Practice, v9 n2 Fall 2007
This article discusses a project about babies undertaken by a class of children ranging in age from 2.9 years to 3.9 years old in a small Illinois town. Throughout this project, the children studied equipment and supplies needed to care for babies. They made dolls for the classroom, constructed a cradle, made observational drawings, created topic webs, and were able to care for a real baby. The article documents the children's work through photographs, provides the teachers' reflections, and lists the Illinois Early Learning Benchmarks that were met.
