Philosophy: Confucius – Should you be rewarded for your efforts in school? (Bright Minds Years 3-4)
Famous thinkers have always investigated philosophy! A topic question will guide our open-ended discussions as we explore our deepest beliefs and thoughts.
A sense of adventure, an open-mind and a love of thinking is essential! Students will probably end up with more questions than answers, as they ponder the big questions of life!
