Reflection: Real World Applications It's All in the Details! - Section 5: Elaboration


When you are 7 years old, what is better than pretending to be someone special in the adult world?  Our world seems so magical to them, a mystery to be unfolded.  When they get to take a glimpse into it, they feel like they are just like us, the role models they aspire to be.  In this part of the lesson they get to do just that--they get to be someone who makes a real difference in our adult world---a scientist collecting data.  This is just a first foundational step, but a step in the right direction, nonetheless.  And best of all, the children love it and learn from it.  Life is good.
