Learning Everywhere - But NOT Didactic

I was at Trader Joe's yesterday (and probably every other day too) and noticed a new piece of artwork in the art gallery ... I mean store.

I had to snap a picture of it.  I love that they take the time to do things like this.  I love that my kids can learn just by absorbing things in their environment (not overly didactic - just kind of like..."hey look at this.  Isn't this neat?  Look at all these kinds of apples.  I wonder what is different about them.  Let's try a new one."

Wonder = Childhood = Learning

Teaching Photosynthesis

Creating a colorful drawing and having the child label this is a multi-layered learning experience that will deepen their knowledge better than a worksheet.  So allow them to take their time with it and create meaning.
