What versions of historical events would they end up with? Debates on biased sources, 'history is written by the victors', and whitewashing. Gym class with organized games (getting picked last). I think you've hit science before, but dissections, mixing chemicals, engineering...it's all so much fun. And yes, math
Looks up....no I'm not a nerd. Nope nope nope.
What age do you think they are? This is daycare, not school, so lessons would be along the line of A is for Apple, B is for Blaster, C is for Chiss... Science, engineering, discussion of history being anything but literal truth are all far too advanced.
