Our igloo collapsed this week. On hand I was a little sad to see a project we spent so much time and energy on collapse, on the other I was overjoyed to see a learning moment unfold before our very eyes.
After all, how ofter do students get to watch structure collapsing in real time. It was fantastic to see how at first a few bottles came out and then the speed of collapse became a lot quicker until the final implosion.
This experience wasn’t planned, yet the learning conversations that came out of it were so rich.
Hooray to accidental learning.
