It is not about the finished product, but more the process and journey of learning to be curious, explore and investigate. Children are given room to think, evaluate and determine how to reach their goals and complete the project. You may think you know the direction they are heading when given a set of materials but most times they think of things that were not even on your radar. It is a place where mistakes are ok and learned from. We have added ART to kindergarten stem to include many more skills.
