Natural Curiosity- Teachers’s Resource

Natural Curiosity- Teachers's Resource

This resource for teachers is based on the research work from the Laboratory School at the Dr. Erick Jackman Institute of Child Study, at OISE. Natural curiosity rests on the bases that children have a natural inclination to figuring out the world. If we switch to teaching and learning following children’s natural inquiry about the world we penetrate into a sense of wonder and of powerful inquiry based learning. Thus, inquiry based learning creates a fundamental and intrinsic interconnection of the child to the world. Caring about the world is a state of mind that will be required to heal the world.
