Froebel Inspired Design Education

I was contacted by Scott Bultman who is producing the documentary film about Kindergarten that will feature our Clear Spring School students in one or more episodes.

He asked for help, and you can give it. In order to gain full functionality of a channel on youtube, he needs to gain a large number of new subscribers. You can subscribe at this site:

There, you will also see some documentary film worth watching. The video above is but one example. By subscribing you will assure that there are more made available on the youtube site.

Tomorrow in the ESSA wood shop, my high school students will be working on the Bevins Skiffs. Tomorrow afternoon our 4th, 5th and 6th grade students will be making mineral collection boxes.

Please use the link above and by subscribing, you will  assert your own recognition of the value of this project and hands on learning. So why is Kindergarten so important? Froebel set up a method of teaching based on how we actually learn, through play. How we learn best does not actually change as we grow older. Even university learning (and universities themselves) can be transformed and made effective.
"Children are like tiny flowers: They are varied and need care, but each is beautiful alone and glorious when seen in the community of peers." - Friedrich Froebel (1782-1852).
Make, fix and create.
