social constructivism explained?

First graders were talking about Sabot school, and why they think it is "so awesome"...

"everybody knows a little bit about something, and then we join that together and we all know a lot... and we make kind of like a network... Yes!, yes we do, and the best part is, we all have great friends. And being nice is also important."
After the camera was off, H. added "See, because knowledge is so big, just one person can't know it all, so we have to work together."

After this, they had a discussion about naming their field day team the 'knowledge network', but yesterday chose the Peregrine Team, because peregrine falcons are clever AND fast. Thanks to 1st grade teacher Allison for collaborating with me all year!
