Tapping Into Their Interests

So on my favorite teacher forum I discovered the site: . A man named Carlos in California put a "Barn Box" in his barn and there's a live feed documenting an owl named Molly who had 5 eggs and now has 3 babies.

My kids have been so inspired by her to learn everything they can about owls! I truly believe that your lessons should be flexible enough to go where your little sponges want to go. So we've done many lessons on the life cycle of owls.  Yesterday they made a replica of Molly using a pinecone wrapped in cotton. Then they wrote about what they learned from her.
