Students' creativity flourishes when they are invested in meaningful problems that make a difference for individuals. For example when we discussed the need for clean water the other day, everyone was interested. They want to know how their world works and how they can make it better. They don't want children or others to suffer. They want beautiful lands. They enjoy each others company and friendship. They desire happy, peaceful communities. Therefore the more we can target learning towards positive, meaningful activity, the more curious and fulfilled our children will be. 

How does this idea help to spark student curiosity?

Children want to know about the world around them. They enjoy hearing real stories. They like to be empowered. They want hands-on education, learning, problems, and projects.

What grade level is this idea most appropriate for?

  • Elementary (1-5)
