Teachers worked on Artful Learning units today. I worked with 3 different grade levels. I'm excited about their inquiry centers. With the 3rd grade team, I am helping plan an inquiry center on "food systems." I want to compare fast food and slow food systems. With the second grade team, I'm going to try to put together an inquiry center about Bloomington's first settlers. I spent hours thinking about these centers today and really haven't started putting anything together. I'll figure it out. I like doing this kind of work. But it takes time and a lot of brain work. So much easier to just teach someone something than to set them up for learning it on their own. Wish me luck!
