Put kids’ skepticism to work

by Stephanie Chasteen on October 10, 2008

In the latest episode of my Science Teaching Tips podcast, you can hear (the wildly funny) children’s book author David Schwartz talk about how he used kids’ skepticism to get them to do some good measurement problem.   A class disagreed with the numbers in one of his math books, and set out to prove him wrong by surveying the heights of all the students in the school.  What a teacher’s dream!

Hear the episode — Then YOU measure it.
