Inquiry on my inquiry into science and science teaching
Sunday, May 29, 2011
One of the kids my wife takes care of called the outside part of the mineral its "skin". I think that is a really cool way to see that rock. Plus, I think it potentially tells us a lot about perception, language-learning, and even perhaps naive understanding of topology. It made me wonder what she thought the skin was for: Would she think is was to protect the crystal?
