As a kid did you ever create cupcakes with play doh, and try to build a tower out of all of your lego or your dream house? We had the privilege last week to listen to Sylvia Martinez and my mind is racing. One way is to talk less and let the kids discover more. This quote from the discussion really resonated with me as a teacher and a mother. I talk way to much and kids do not do enough discovering. I definitely need to think about my middle years program and how I can get some of these into my teaching.
1) start small
2) I don’t need a 3-D printer I can use cardboard
3) Squishy circuits is a must in my electricity unit
