Summary The purpose of this project was to investigate a History-Social Science Curriculum project taught to 15 three-year-old preschoolers. During the project, children were encouraged to investigate core elements of past daily routines while stimulating cognitive and social-emotional developmental domains. For instance, they were to investigate past artifacts (such as a washboard or lantern) and concepts using their innovative and critical thinking, as well as curiosity and problem-solving skills. In addition, the project constructed child-centered activities accentuating peer-directed learning and cohesiveness, inspired by the Project approach and Reggio-based approach concepts. Perceiving the children as active learners and understanding capacities such as children's special needs, developmental competences, language skills, and cultural background, were foundational to this project. Focusing on the process of learning and on gradually scaffolding children's engagement and comprehension, the project was presented over a relatively long period of time of one month. The following paper will extensively examine and provide a vivid and comprehensive description of the project, objectives, related research and empirical studies, assessment and evaluation, modifications for special needs, English learners, families' inclusion and future suggestions.
