Discovery Zone Summer Program
Children will personalize their learning throughout each week of Discovery Zone. To launch each theme, educators will pose strategic questions of inquiry, carving out a more narrowed, topic of exploration geared specifically to the children’s interests. A simple question to start this collaborative process could be “I wonder what I will learn?”.
As educators and children travel down this path of collaboration, intentional questions of inquiry will be offered each step of the way, including: “I wonder how I become an inventor?”,” I wonder how I can save the planet?”, “I wonder what the future will look like?”. Based on both the responses of the children, and observations made by educators, new materials will be provided, and activities will be developed to deepen the topic of exploration.
Educators will have a resource set of activities separated by theme to draw from based on the interests, skills, and guided direction of the children. Themes will run for two weeks each to allow for optimal time for inquiry, collaboration, reflection, and celebration of discovery.
