This video showed a great example of embracing learning for all kinds of students  - hands on, using their environment and senses, being able to ask questions and learning through trial and error.  By creating an environment where learning is made applicable to every day life and having a high level of engagement  for the students will enhance their love of learning.

Yes I do agree, making mistakes  is part of learning. Obsevering is also another way the children here are learning but do not really no it. Which is great their 5 senses are coming in to play also having so much fun/learning . I feel if they are having fun they will become curious, creative and more knowldgeable.

I enjoyed watching this video.  Its hands on and promoted hands on learning.  I feel students get more when they are physically engaged.  I have incorporated a lot of hands on activities.  We have made volcanoes, tornadoes, and now they are making planets.  In math I have incorporated manipulitives in lessons to give students more engaged learning.

I love that they focus on creating lifelong learners by teaching students to be observant of the world around them. They become active learners instead of just passively completing assignments. The focus on the feeling of safety and allowing the students to feel like safe in participating is extremely important in this process.

Students are by nature curious and in fact, should be. This school emphasizes the importance of curiosity playing out in different forms using their five senses, but also by questioning. It really pushes students to grab a hold of their education, and chase after knowledge, as the video puts it.
