When students and teacher are each filled with wonder and intrigue learning takes on a new dimension and becomes an opportunity to not only master a subject, but develop the ability to know how to question and learn about life in many forms. Curriculum that comes out of deep, and reach topics engage the student on so many levels. Birds provide a topic of intrigue that invites the students to engage in their environment, learn about birds, but learn about learning and how to express what they are learning. Take something that is meaningful and use it as a vehicle to learn how to learn. Combination of wonder on part of children and wonder on the part of adults moves the teacher from teaching to the kids to engaging in the learning process side by side.
