Curriculum project: Introducing an inquiry-based project on farmsGormley, Melissa A. (State University of New York at Fredonia, 2018-12-20)This Master’s curriculum project focused on creating a developmentally appropriate curriculum for a toddler classroom. The findings from the literature review suggested that a curriculum should include meaningful experiences for children to explore with all senses. Findings further find the curriculum should be child-centered, interactive and age appropriate. This resulted in a professional development inquiry project for toddlers to experience farm life through picture books and interactive learning segments throughout play.
