Yesterday, I put my kids in groups, gave them some wires, light bulbs and batteries and asked them if they could make the light bulb light up. And they did it! All of the groups were happily engaged and successful in every task I gave them. I was so proud. It was super fun watching them watch their bulb light up. I loved how the lighting of the bulb was mirrored in the brightening expressions on their faces.
I also loved the innovation - these guys helped their batteries stay together with some paper and broken rubber band.
