So, the heck with curriculum, go with the moment. It's easy. Let's take chemistry. Everything is made of atoms and atoms clumped together are called molecules. Oxygen is 02. Alcohol is OH. Notice that there is only one 0 in alcohol, instead of the two needed to sustain life. So that if you chug-a-lug like some nut that you see in the movies, you are in serious danger of asphyxiating yourself. You have now taught more in one minute than in the previous six weeks combined because you have the two elements that kids crave: drama and interest.
