Children aren't little adults.

The adults making curriculum seem to forget that a lot. They create things that would keep *their* attention about a subject they already understand.
I think this is why we get so much group thinking and "exploration" and the like before the students have just been taught. Directly. But direct teaching and practice seems boring for an adult who already understands it.
