Project Based Learning

What is Project Based Learning?

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects.  Arrowhead students are working on a community garden, mapping habitat and native plants on our campus and personal identity projects.  Learn more about grade-specific Arrowhead projects below.

Kindergarten students set up a cardboard tube rollercoaster.  Sitting back and watching marbles go through coaster.

Kindergarten students created a cardboard tube roller coaster.  They are learning about structures, gravity, and shapes.  Students work as a team to problem solve how to get the different size tubes to stay connected, how to put the tubes at the correct height for the marble to keep moving and how to fix the structure if it doesn't work the way they thought it would.
