This is just great. However, the bottom line is that kids love perspective if
you tell them that they can make things look "REAL". It may not be scholarly
or academic, but it is a way to make the kids want to learn it. (ESPECIALLY
AT THE 4-5th grade level when the "Don't look at my paper" syndrome appears.)
The explanations, definitions, and intellectual dialogue can come later and
that is OK and just fine.
