I found Piaget's tool box! Really!! This is the actual toolbox that belonged to the famous educational researcher Jean Piaget - the father of Constructivism. There is no particular explanation I can offer as to why it was not put in a museum before this time. It was just sitting there on the sidewalk and no one seemed to want it, so I picked it up and took it into my classroom. Inside I found a few simple hand tools and some everyday materials, plus a few inexpensive items any serious scrapbooking grandmother would have on hand.
I was asked what I am going to bring into the classroom on the first day of school at St. Raymond. Answer: Piaget 's tool box. Along with the famous toolbox I will bring some LED's and Microbits and see what the students decide to build.
Looking forward to it!
*no actual thievery or skullduggery went in the writing of this blog post as I am only 99.9% sure I found Piaget's original toolbox, there is a small chance it was curated on my own from years of teaching.
