index," so many children going back to school right now as you know. This morning, we're getting a look at just what that experience is like through the eyes of a first grader. Oh, this is adorable. ABC's Rebecca Jarvis has the story. Reporter: Pop quiz, what's really going on behind those closed doors on the first day of school? Take a look at this. It's the world through the eyes of 6-year-old Andrew weber. We wanted to see what it was like to be a kid, a first grader at Mcfarlane park on the first day of school. Reporter: So his parents had him wear a gopro to his Tampa, Florida, school on day one. Watch here as Andrew walks down the hall to his classroom and here's Andrew going in for a hug from his nice new teacher. Want a hug? It's a little scary for the little guy. I was impressed with what the perspective was of a 3 foot something child, how big everything was. The furniture, how big adults were, how big some of the other kids in school and I think we sort of forget that perspective. Reporter: Here he is in front of the entire classroom all eyes on Andrew but he says that gopro made him the most popular kid in school. My friends wanted to wear it. Like, I warrant to wear it. Reporter: For may it's a huge insight into that age-old question how was your day. I have that challenge every day when I pick my children up from school. Tell me about your favorite part of school and I always get that one word answer. Now I know maybe different kinds of questions to ask about their friends. Reporter: Andrew's teacher and principal also pro gopro. On the first day of school everybody has nerves and jitters and it was exciting to see what the kids felt. I thought about from the child's perspective what it looked like, what they were experiencing, the social skills, the developmental skills. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Rebecca Jarvis, ABC news, New York. Nice perspective. I love that. I would love to have that perspective of my kids' days at school.
