Now that I'm an adult, learning is something I crave. I enjoy. The discovery channel would be on 24/7 if I had my way! History intrigues me and the world around me is fascinating. And don't even get me started on the universe. Woah!
But back at school, learning was a chore. Something we had to endure to get through school and out the other side with some qualifications.
As my daughter said recently "Nobody really wants to go to school do they? Nobody loves it mum!"
But can't learning be fun? Yes many teachers work their butts off to make their lessons fascinating in the hope the kids are inspired, but with 30 kids in a class and all at different levels, it can be difficult to achieve this.
At Lucky Gecko their mission is to inspire children to think differently about their education and take back control of how they learn.
Learning should be an adventure which will last a lifetime. It is what makes the world exciting. The more we know, the more we want to know. The more we search, the more mysteries we find.
Lucky Gecko Discovery Boxes are designed to get children connecting the dots between what they learn at school and the world around them. Knowledge doesn’t (and shouldn’t) break down into simple, separate chunks. Geography is History, History is Literature, Music is Maths and Sport is Science. Everything connects, and finding those connections is both inspiring and empowering.
Lucky Gecko Discovery Boxes teach children about the world, about themselves and about others. But they also give them the confidence to be curious, to dream and to think for themselves.
Here's how it works:
CHOOSE your box and subscribe. They're all fab, so this may be tricky.
RECEIVE a new box every month. Set your alarm, write a note on the calendar, tie some cotton around your finger (yes that's a thing...). Your box will be with you before you know it!
DISCOVER a whole new way of learning. Stand well back and watch as the spark of inspiration is lit.
