Science and Nature

Naturally demonstrate curiosity and a willingness to explore, experiment and discovery using a variety of materials, tools and fundamentals.

Develop process skills – collecting, observing, identifying, comparing, classifying, ordering, measuring, estimating,  predicting, interpreting, communicating, inferring and recording.

Explore using sense of – touch, sight, smell, taste and hearing.

Demonstrate the ability to make a plan; collect materials and information and carry out that plan.

Establish cause and effect, make observations about results from experimenting with materials and problem solve by answering – what, where, when, how and why.

Extend and apply prior knowledge to solve the problem at hand, developing concrete learning into abstract thinking.

Progress to drawing, writing and reading messages describing their experiments and findings.

Subsequently kindergarten students, research, collect materials, develop, conduct, present, draw and write their own science fair experiments using the headings:

  1. Problem/Purpose
  2. What we need/materials
  3. Experiment procedure/what do we do?
  4. Conclusion/what did we discover/learn?
  5. Take a closer look
  6. What else can you do?
