Thinking Outside The Box

Prep 5 have been thinking 'outside the box' and invited Prep 2 to get involved with their discussions. Questions asked ranged from: 'Is lined paper heavier than plain paper?' and 'What is the difference between adults and children?' The discussions were child-lead and all were encouraged to explain the reason behind their answer. There were some great responses and high-level thinking from both classes.
