Teachable Moments

50 years since Sputnik. Oh look, here are a few fantastic 'teachable moments'...

Oh that's right... you can't fit it in because you're doing a bloody 'integrated unit' on Antarctica! or have a few speeling worksheets to finish.

Did I mention that I'm not a big fan of 'Integrated Units'. ;(

i agree! Teachable moments are interesting and exciting and give opportunity for the children to relate/react to their everyday world. Often that's the best place to get children thinking outside the box.

I quite agree, the research findings in this area is rather limited and generally inconclusive
