Cultivating Curiosity in Kids
Wondrous is the curiosity of a child who is enamoured by nature to ponder the colour and texture of a shell and raise it to the ear to hear the melody of the ocean in its depths. This curiosity leads to analysis, to caress and hold a flower, thus discovering the parts that make it whole. Finally, the delight to trace the curves and capture the change in hue of a natural object to reflect its structure and beauty as a way of remembering this moment of discovery of the natural world. A rich experience is shared when a child is given the opportunity to engage their curiosity to discover the natural world around them. This curiosity is the driver of learning.
