Let’s get an illustration to see, how integrated learning takes place in project approach method.
“The great aim of education is not knowledge, but action.” Through action, or activities we can very easily make our integrated learning easier for children.
Through cooking activities we can connect all the subjects together to understand all things through one activity. Cooking activity can be taken once in a month with every project. In cooking we collect all the ingredients, then we can discuss about the ingredients in details. While discussion, children develops listing power and they enhance their vocabulary by knowing new words and terminology. Have you ever thought of connecting history with the cooking activity? We can relate cooking to history by telling the children about importance of recipes in the ancient times .We can connect   After discussion we start the process of that recipe. While cooking, the process of making that particular recipe, children relate it to science subject. After discussion we measure all the ingredients with the help of weighing machine relating it to Math, and we can also analyze how math is involved in cooking.
We can also relate geography with cooing activity by asking the children about the places where these ingredients mostly grown. Some questions can be asked on the basis of highest producing places, and then locating those places on map will be lively for the children. Children will enjoy the hands on practical activity and they will learn many things with the help of teacher. Through this activity we can relate all the subjects in a better way to reach competency. The mind of a child is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled and that is possible through integrated learning system.
