"Look, Look! Do you want to hear MY driving question?"
"I want to tell you what I learned about the wholly mammoth being in Iowa."
"Did you know that raccoons really don't dip their food in the water?"
As I walked around the library yesterday these were all things I heard our wonderful kindergarten students saying to each other and the guests they invited to our "Iowa Animal Research Project Playground." Parents, grandparents, teachers, and siblings were among the special guests all learning so much from our youngest learners.
It was an amazing hour to just step back and see how even five and six years old can be the best teachers in the world. They have so much to contribute and this is just the start of engaging them in amazing learning, creative, and collaborative experiences.
