We will be spending the next few weeks thinking like scientists. I primed the pump last week by having the children take a close look at just who a scientist is and what they do. What we discovered is that scientist are ordinary people, just like us, who happen to be very curious. They also ask a lot of questions and search for answers. As it turns out kindergarteners possess those very same qualities!
As kinderologists (we are pretty much experts at being 5 and 6) we will begin our scientific studies with solids and liquids. Check back for insightful questions and discoveries from the children. Especially when we dive into the area of non-Newtonian fluids . . .
