Experiments That Fail?

a chance to start over and try againI wonder if you would like to read a book with the title 11 Experiments That Failed?

The title sounds a bit gloomy …

But the faces I saw today after the book was read were not!

I had a chance today to visit a classroom full of legos …

Make that full of Legos and Literature!

So I missed the first part of class when the book was read …

But after the book was read, the tubs of legos came out!…

Students built a bird …

And then did experiments to see how much the bird could eat and still stay balanced …

By adding small red blocks for berries and long green blocks for fish!

Experiments to WONDER and DISCOVER!

I did see small bits of frustration at times …

But I think reading the book beforehand helped a lot …

I also saw lots of smiling faces and heard lots of giggles!

The students were not afraid to try …

There were no wrong answers …

Only chances to start over and try again …

 

The guys from Eepybird would say to make small adjustments and try again!

 

I wonder what we would be willing to try if we knew there were no wrong answers …. just chances to start over and try again …
