In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program
Lead a group discussion about curiosity. Is curiosity in children a virtue or not? Start things off with questions like these:
Consider sharing these words from Canadian writer Arnold Edinborough: "Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only the cat died nobly."
"Pandora's Box" may be the most famous story about curiosity. Youth may also remember reading others, including the "Curious George" stories by H.A. Rey and Margret Rey (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1969). Ask if they have recently seen movies or read other stories that involve curiosity.
