Science Ideas

Science is about observing and experimenting with the world around us. It is for asking questions (something young children do naturally), making hypothesis, and discovering the answers to our questions. Science occurs daily and we should take the opportunity to explore it when it happens (ie. when you are outside and notice the buds apearing on the tree or an ant making its way back home.) I also have a science table in the room set up during freeplay time so the children can experiment on their own. Science for young children needs to be "hands on". Many of the science ideas listed match my theme ideas and work together well.
