A little moment of success today- I was reading The Librarian Who Measured the Earth by Kathryn Lansky to my class. It's the biography of Eratosthenes, a Greek philosopher and geographer with a passion for learning by seeking answers to questions. The book repeats several times how questioning was his motivation for learning, and in the middle of the reading a student raised his hand and said, "So, Eratosthenes was like, the first Wonderopolis, right?" YES! I loved it! It was a beautiful connection to inquiry learning. After reading the author's note discussing how there were still so many questions about Eratosthenes' life, another student suggested that we submit a wonder about him to Wonderopolis. So we did! Here's hoping they will provide us with even more information about this leader of inquiry learning!
