The Official List of Fun Things
Radiation Level: Gory and bloody
Listening to: Killing Me Softly with His Song by Robert Flack
Today I taught a science class to some second graders where we learned about the physics/history of the boomerang. After, my students all took turns throwing it. The boys went crazy – anything they can throw and chase is always a winner.
After about a half an hour, we went to make propeller-type flyers out of foam. One student, Jared, insisted he didn’t want to make one. When I asked why, he said, “It’s not fun.”
I thought this was very strange because all the other kids seemed to be enjoying themselves, so I handed him a piece of paper and a pencil and said to make a list of “fun things” that he thinks I should include in my classes from now on. Here’s the list:
Eyeballs are most certainly fun – I prefer them to remain in my head, though. I suppose there’s a science lesson about trucks somewhere – please comment if you know one. Shark fins and snake flesh sound more like a bad meal, however.
Well, at least the world finally knows what a seven-year-old boy thinks is fun.
