Early science studies should involve the direct observation and hands-on explorations and investigations. From the beginning, children should understand that science is a process – an active means of answering questions – rather than a to-be-memorized body of facts. I want to introduce my kindergarteners to the process of conducting investigations, analyzing and interpreting data, and constructing explanations for the phenomena they observe. The disciplinary core ideas in the Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS) will be covered but in a fun and interactive manner. The general categories of science study will include Physical Science, Life Science, and Earth/Space Science. Example of a Science Lesson – “The Wonder of Worms” 1. Read children’s books about worms. 2. Discuss the parts of a worm (segment, setae, clitellum, etc.). 3. Examine worms under a magnifying glass and discuss observations. 4. Build a worm hotel. 5. Complete an art project about worms. 6. Design an experiment to answer a question (e.g., do worms prefer darkness or light?). By participating in quality science instruction from a young age, students will, 1. Develop a sense of curiosity and wonder about the natural world and how things work. 2. Develop favorable attitudes towards science. 3. Develop scientific literacy and progress towards STEM-related careers.
