Natural Curiosity

Out of the pages of Professionally Speaking, comes this resource from OISE/UT that uses an inquiry-based approach to learning about the environment.  It is called Natural Curiosity (curiously spelt in American spelling, despite being a Canadian website) and has been endorsed by several elementary teachers in Ontario, as well as David Suzuki.

What does this have to do with math, you ask?  Well, much like we'd like to see in our math classes, with Natural Curiosity, the kids ask the questions and the teachers guide them to potential answers.

The entire program can be downloaded for free at the website, .
