I would love for my kindergarten students to have a Science Exploration table. It is a wooden table with five built-in learning centers. The table has a mirror center for experiments with light and prisms, giant bin for growing plants, two magnifying lenses to observe and compare objects up close, enclosed observation for viewing fragile objects up close, and a large magnetic panel to test objects for magnetism. This learning center could really help all of my students within small group experiments and enrich independent observations and activities. Regularly using this table in my classroom would lead to lots of inquiry learning within my classroom. At my old school, I had lots of science, inquiry-based learning activities, and it fostered a love of learning in my little ones. Students were overjoyed about how I demonstrated magnetism, a magical experience for them. I want to instill this love of learning into this group of students who so desperately need it.
