Thanks, man! The kids seem to crave it, and it reinforces the notion I have that they want explanations to things in their world - metaphorically, spiritually, as well as scientifically. I believe there should be a time in the day for kids to make interdisciplinary connections - connecting science to math, history to english, english to the arts, etc. I have tried endlessly to persuade administration to let me teach a humanities block, to combine literature, history, and the arts, but "there's no money for it." I'm glad you were able to get that music appreciation in 3rd grade. Amazing that class was offered.
