If I Were a Spider by Stephen Bowkett


If I Were a Spider by Stephen Bowkett

The But Why? series presents a tried and tested approach that opens up the realm of bigger and deeper thinking in the classroom - even for the very young. By encouraging questioning and discussion, P4C has been shown to increase motivation, boost creativity, develop confidence and self-esteem, teach moral citizenship, encourage decision making and create a climate for learning.
