Student 1: Ms V - What is that thing?
Me: What thing?
Student 1: That thing! (pointing)
Me: - Oh that sculpture? It is art. It is here to beautify the campus.
Student 1: THAT IS ART??? Are you sure Ms. V?
Me: Yes, that is a type of art.
Student 1: What is it? It isn't even painted!
Student 2: Ms V - That piece of art is made of of solid figures isn't it? That is what we are learning in math right now. That bottom piece is a rectangular prism and the rest is just a bunch of cubes all stuck together.
Me: You are so right! Good eyes!
I love it when they can connect their learning to the real world!!!!!
