How did they carry out the best practice?

First,the Daxin Central Primary and Middle School led the effort in establishing the Yangtze River Cultural Research Community with the Zhangjiagang Maritime Safety Administration, the Zhangjiangang Museum as well as the city’s Water Resources Science Museum.

Second,the Daxin Central Primary School has set up an interdisciplinary study project team, including faculty members from all disciplines, who join forces with outer school agencies to discuss and implement the curriculum.

Third,the community leaders reached a decision: to design the curriculum around an experimentary task, building a Yangtze Culture Museum for Children.Every child taking a part in the project is a designer of the museum, and they will further their study of the Yangtze River culture over the course of designing the museum.The museum model, for instance, is a product of this interdisciplinary curriculum.
