I would do other oil and water experiments to let the students see how water and oil don't mix. I would then let thier questions and interests lead the rest of the lesson. Sign in to vote! Posted 7/21/2010 5:30pm Keerstin Harrington I am feeling rather lost at the moment. I am not with a group yet. Is anyone else looking for a group or wouldn't mind me collaborating with them?

If so, send a message directly to the person whose comments you like. (Click on their name to see their profile page. From there, you can send a personal message.) There are also some good elementary projects getting started in the wiki. Have you explored those? Several are still looking for team members. Good luck! ~Suzie Sign in to vote! Posted 7/22/2010 7:39am Ritamulti-age teacher pre-k -2nd grade I also feel a bit confused, I am not in a group, don't know how to wiki or not sure I want to join Twitter. What am I supposed to be doing now? Also the other groups are for older students. Sign in to vote! Posted 7/22/2010 8:08am Suzie BossJournalist and PBL advocate Blogger Hi Rita and Keerstin, How about you two starting a new team? Looks like you're both working with primary students. Even if you decide to do individual projects, you'll have a brainstorming partner. You can connect by sending each other a personal message in the Edutopia community. Sign in to vote! Posted 7/22/2010 8:14am Suzie BossJournalist and PBL advocate Blogger Amanda, There are some teams underway that are still looking for members. I'm sure they'd love to have you contribute during the coming week. Take a look at the wiki project folder--or send me a message if you'd like some ideas! Sign in to vote!

Posted 8/13/2010 4:11am Stephanie Dulmage Participating in the PBL Camp was so valuable. I can't wait to implement all of the wonderful ideas. I looking for first grade teachers to collaborate on a project titled "Who We Are?" I'd like to roll all of the "getting to know you stuff" into a project that starts with the indivudal student and moves to who we are and our impact/value as a class and school with a strong inquiry, critical thinking base and tech integration. Let me know if you'd like to collaborate. Sign in to vote! Posted 2/19/2013 7:30pm Laura R BinghamKindergarten Teacher I would like to do a PBL on the Ocean with my Kindergarten Students.
