Authentic Project Ideas – Fountains and Pineapples

My inspiration for this blog entry came from this photograph of a fountain in Charleston, South Carolina. Fountains and pineapples seem a strange combination for authentic project ideas. But this photo could be used to inspire so many different authentic projects.

Do research about fountains. What is the history of fountains? Why do we have fountains? Why do fountains attract people? Do fountains waste water? Design a fountain. Build a working model of a fountain. Build a real fountain.

Why is there a pineapple on top of this fountain? What do pineapples signify? Where do pineapples grow? What are pineapples used for? Grow a real pineapple. Create a recipe using pineapples.

One photo, so many different authentic ways to go from one photo.
