NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Teacher Pete Kaser was inspired by his 3-year-old students to try something a little different.
He removed all the toys and learning material from his Arlington, Ohio classroom and replaced it with raw materials like cardboard boxes.
What he discovered surprised even him.
"Not one of them complained about not having a toys and it was actually really cool because so of the quieter kids actually got to show leadership roles in projects," Kaser says.
