How Kids See the World
Today as part of a inquiry-based math lesson we were using straws and twist ties to make quadrangles. The goal was to explore, compare and contrast a variety of quadrangles. One of those quadrangles was a kite.
It wasn't a kite to everyone though. To one of my boys, it was a coffin. To a certain extent, you have to admire his creativity. More so though, I felt saddened by his premature morbid view of the world. He's seen way more than any eight-year-old should have to, and sometimes I forget until moments like this.
