Children and science go hand in hand. Questions are the language of childhood: How big? How far? What if? How many? Why not? How do we learn? taps this natural curiosity. To find answers, students use their senses, explore tools, and take measurements. They observe the colors, shapes, and textures of objects in nature and the classroom. As they share their observations, they enrich their descriptive vocabulary. They discover how tools extend their ability to find out about their world. Students practice using nonstandard and standard units of length and various measuring tools. Each activity engages the young learners in doing science. And they begin to master essential science skills: question, predict, observe, describe, measure, collect information, compare. (12 Activities)
