What a fantastic example of artful documentation. This can be both displayed in the classroom and added to each child's portfolio. It is both beautiful and descriptive, explaining how the project came to be, what they did, and what it meant to the people involved. From Branches Atelier, a Reggio-Inspired school in California.
