Clip to ScrapBook #6

Evergreen- thank you. I have felt so frustrated this year.. I want to see them curious, but they simply aren't. I'm working on next year- looking at centers. I'm thinking of putting simple things out and just assign them the task of asking questions.

Example: put out magnets. Or maybe a circuit set. Or density/discovery bottles. Assignment- why? How? Where? What? Give no answers. I have discovered that even my 6th graders have not played with simple things like we did. Magnets, paper clips, safety pins, ball point pins. When I was a kid we entertained ourselves by taking then apart and playing with them. I knew which pieces of gravel would double for chalk. I had no idea it was science. It was simply play.
