Learn at Lunch and Recess?

Parents, principals, teachers, and other adults have as much to learn as do children, and their chances for for doing so are about the same.

Fifth graders liked the idea of becoming worm wranglers and flower farmers at recess. A few mothers didn't like what happened to their cloths. Others wondered what good was likely to come from wrangling worms and farming flowers at school. What learning could be motivated through flowers and worms? Principals wondered too. Principals have a lot to learn. Who is to teach them?

Some fourth and sixth graders wondered what went on behind their lunch counter. Was there something worthwhile to be learned there? Was there practical motivation for learning to be found behind that counter?
