Investigations is the curriculum used by Eastern's Child and Family Development Resource Center (CFDRC). The curriculum is centered around engaging
projects—called "investigations"—on topics that are selected by children,
teachers, and families. As children investigate a topic in learning centers,
small collaborative groups, whole group activities, movement and music
experiences, outdoor observation, or field trips, they acquire critical
competencies identified in the Connecticut State Department of Education
Curriculum and Assessment Framework and the standards of national professional
organizations. In Going Green, three preschool teachers describe how children engaged in a variety of learning activities while exploring what it means to "go green." The video also features an interview with Dr. Theresa Bouley about the importance of connecting children to nature.
