This week, we are learning how scientists know so much: they start by observing and asking questions! Students carefully observed an everyday object to spark their curiosity, then practiced asking questions like a scientist.
You can encourage your child’s curiosity at home! The next time your child notices something interesting, ask them to come up with more questions about it. Static on washed clothes, dull old pennies, or a weed growing in the park – even the simplest observations can lead to profound scientific questions!
