Explore Life’s Essential Questions

Philosophy encourages young people to trust their own questions and ideas about the world, empowering them to think for themselves about the meaning of their experiences. University of Washington’s Center for Philosophy for Children introduces philosophy to K–12 students by using children’s books and activities to inspire exploration of life’s essential questions. The center’s website offers more than 100 lesson plans for using children’s literature to introduce philosophy, as well as active games and exercises for engaging children in philosophy, tips for successful precollege philosophy sessions, and the Wondering Aloud blog, which includes thoughts about doing philosophy with young people and ideas for how to introduce philosophy in K–12 classrooms.
