The children of La Villetta Preschool decided that the birds that inhabit the school grounds needed an amusement park. This book contains teacher’s notes about the intent and process of the project as well as conversations, photos and children’s work taken from the project.
Loris Malaguzzi explains the development of this project in particular (how this project links to projects from previous years) and the construction of projects in general.
The role of the Hundred Languages as a pedagogical strategy to the development of children’s thinking is demonstrated. This was the teacher’s initial research proposal. Documentation included the children’s conversations as well as their drawings, constructions etc.
