Are Your Students Curious?

Are Your Students Curious?

“…But there was one Elephant–a new Elephant–an Elephant’s Child–who was full of insatiable curiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions. And he lived in Africa, and he filled all Africa with his ‘satiable curtiosities…’ ”

“The Elephant’s Child” by Rudyard Kipling

Kids Ask Questions!

We have some ideas today for your curious students.  Our subscriptions are constantly offering new ideas to encourage curiosity, or to answer the ‘satiable curiosities’ of your students.

  • Would your students enjoy reading fiction about other students who are curious?  A good place for them to do that is in our NoveList Plus site.  Students can go into NoveList Plus and find fiction OR nonfiction books.  “A great example is Iggy Peck, Architect, in which a second-grade boy saves the day when he uses his ingenuity and items at hand to create a bridge to rescue his class, which has become stranded on an island during a picnic.”  Here is a site which will explain how to find STEM fiction books about students who are curious.

  • Would your student like to learn about how things are made?  Have they ever wondered how LEGOs are made?  What about balloons?  Or ice cream?  Here is a post from our EverFi subscription which gives us links to 14 different videos showing how things are made.  I’m going to watch the ones about how matches are made, and how the Tesla Model S is made.

  • Would your high school students be interested in problem-solving a real world problem as a STEM professional?  Gizmos “STEM Cases” for high school OR AP biology give them the opportunity to do so.  The STEM Cases available are Photosynthesis, Evolution and Enzymes.  For example: Photosynthesis (watch a video preview of Photosynthesis.)
