Cool School Design by Takaharu Tezuka

It's my last day of vacation before the school year officially starts (yikes!), and I wanted to share one of my favourite TED Talk videos as a reminder of how important it is to give children plenty of time for imagination and play.

Architect Takaharu Tezuka clearly understands what children want and he demonstrates this with the innovative school he designed for Kindergarten kids in Tokyo. I showed this video to my Grade 6 class last year, and even though they were considerably older than the little kids in the video, every single one of them said they wished that this was their school.
