My elementary science students have voracious curiosities. For us, abstract literacy and mathematics concepts are best taught via arts and sciences inquiry, where my students are encouraged to ask "Why?" through all five senses. This process has little to do with memorizing word definitions. Instead, word comprehension is firmly rooted in long-term memory, in context, by seeing, smelling, listening, hearing, and tasting the words in action.
