Marshal thanks for the link to the Curiosity in the Classroom website...interesting place. I think curiosity leads to interest. Curiosity is serendipitous leading you to unanticipated places. Places that are sometimes enjoyable and sometimes uncomfortable; either way life would be awful dull without curiosity. This post spurred my curiosity. I followed the link to the Discovery Education website, which lead me to the Discovery Curiosity TV Show website, which lead me to the Creators Project website which lead me to the UltraBook Project website...whew. For me the best strategy for keeping kids curious...recognize the everyday moments that can encourage curiosity. Of the 10 tips for Parents to promote curiosity, which do you think should be number one?
Come to think of it, that list would be a good Visual Ranking activity.
