Children are born curious about the world around them; they are natural scientists. But for many teachers, understanding how to engage children in scientific inquiry requires more experience and ongoing practice. This webinar focuses on using the scientific method to support children’s cognitive and language development, and discusses how education managers can support teachers to infuse science throughout the day.
Children start to inquire about the world around them as early as birth. The scientific method provides a framework to support this natural curiosity. Use the method’s five steps to help expand children’s understanding of their environment. The steps include: ask questions, make observations, predict possible outcomes, experiment with novel items, and discuss actual outcomes.
In this brief video clip from The Office of Head Start Discovering Science Webcast Series, Dr. Patton Tabors, a dual language learning expert, describes what teachers may do to support science learning for children who speak different languages.
