The Art of Conversation

A student(age 6 ) approached me in art today clutching wires and an old electrical plug. He explained: “We are talking about science, and being scientific, but we are being creative, like artists.”
Later, in our evaluation/assessment gathering, he explained to the class: “We are making a scientific, electrical thing that is very complicated and even I can’t understand it, but my friends can” (age 8 and 9 respectfully).
As students gathered at the door to line up, the process continued. Now they had added another 8 year old to the group:
"We can generate more ideas if you two talk about it in your class, and we two talk about it in our class”
"We need a back-up generator!”

(Maybe you had to be there…)
