Chances to try?

11 Experiments That Failed.PNGI 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!

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 …
