This book documents a project that was facilitated by teachers Lauren Adams and Caroline Wolfe in the Opal Beginning School preschool classroom with children ages 3 - 5 years during the 2012 - 13 school year. The story that you'll find contained in these pages was written and presented by Lauren and Caroline for the Opal School Summer Symposium in June, 2013. They inspire us to wonder together: How does the world of imagination and storytelling support the world of science and reason? How might the languages of the arts support children to make sense of their relationship with one another and together negotiate meaning of the world around them? What if adults worked with children to bring their ideas to life? What might be possible for us all? Includes questions for reflection to support teacher practice and discussion.

Museum Center for Learning

The Museum Center for Learning is about research—the art of paying attention, capturing what we notice, and interpreting children’s learning approaches for everyone who has an investment in schooling our young. The Center strengthens and expands the work of the Museum’s Opal School, preschool through grade five. We’re paying attention to the natural learning strategies of children in order to support and strengthen them in both school and museum settings. The mission of the Center is to make visible the ways children think, imagine, design, invent, and create when given intelligent materials including the tools of the arts and sciences. We’re sharing what we learn with educators—locally, regionally and nationally.

Review from Dr. Louise Cadwell, author of Bringing Reggio Emilia Home: An Innovative Approach to Early Childhood Education, co-founder, Cadwell Collaborative
“In Creating Possible Worlds, we see a project about seeds unfold through photographs, children's stories and drawings and teachers' insightful comments. The heart of the learning in this project focuses on relationships, connections and empathy for living systems that we are all a part of. This little book adds to the beautiful collection of publications from Opal School. It offers us another glimpse into the imaginative and extraordinary work that children and teachers engage in every day at Opal, and inspires us to do the same.”

Review from Vicki Vinton, literacy consultant and author of What Readers Really Do: Teaching the Process of Meaning Making and the blog To Make a Prairie
“Once again, the wonderful educators at the Opal School have offered us a glimpse into the minds of young children by creating a safe and nurturing space for them to wonder, explore, discover and express their discoveries in thrilling ways. What we see in those minds is not only delightful but profound: These are children who, through playful inquiry, attempt to make sense of the world around them with boundless curiosity, compassion and joy. And we see that same boundless curiosity, compassion and joy in the minds of their teachers who have traded certainty in for wonder and pre-determined outcomes for trust in order to arrive an unexpected but truly glorious ends.”
