Becky,

I would highly recommend taking an aesthetics class or any philosophy class.
Surely your own sense of wonder and questioning goes much deeper than that.
Children are able to think abstractly. Try it and you will see them respond
ecstatically. I would recommend the following readings in philosophy for
children if you are really concerned about bringing higher level inquiry into
your classroom.

Journals - Thinking (Philosophy for Children)
Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism

Authors:
Matthew Lipman (several titles)
Marcia Eaton (Basic Issues in Aesthetics)
Gareth Matthews

If you devote some time to the study of Aesthetics and Philosophy in the
Classroom, you will not regret it.
