Ep 27 The Questions that Lead to Curiosity and Knowledge

Episode Description

Kids ask a lot of questions! They ask questions because they have an innate desire for knowledge. But, sadly as children progress through school and eventually adulthood, the questions become fewer until eventually as adults we may not be questioning at all.

Questions are the gateway to knowledge, but not all questions are equal.
In this episode we explore the questions that get kids thinking and curious. The questions that educators need to ask to get students curious and thinking and even those questions that take learning further and deeper.
