Engaging Activities with Rollie Pollie | Learn & Play

Rollie Pollies Race (Inquiry-Based Learning)

Have you ever raced Rollie Pollies (pill bugs)?

Mommy, why do I have to do that? What Is that? How does it work?
The preschool class’s Rollie Pollie discovery is an excellent demonstration of inquiry-based learning in action.
The 4 steps of inquiry-based learning (IBL) support children’s daily engagement in practical life, sensorial, science, mathematic, and social activities preparing them for academic excellence.
Throughout the process, IBL enhances children’s critical thinking skills, communication, curiosity, memorization, and independence.

“Inquiry-based learning is more than asking a student what he or she wants to know. It’s about triggering curiosity. And activating a student’s curiosity is, I would argue, a far more important and complex goal than mere information delivery.”
