First grade students love to learn about the world around them! I have had students who enjoy looking at science books and finding out about topics like plants, insects, animals and outer space. Students have so many questions and wonderments about the world.
Science time is usually my students favorite part of the day.
Cheers break out when I say, "It's science time!" They know they will get to explore our world by using hands on materials, and they love it!
First grade students are curious about science and learn through hands on experiences. Instead of me only telling and reading about light and sound waves, I can show them. Students will get to use fun boom whackers and tuning forks as they explore sound. They will get to use prisms and colored lenses to explore light and they will get a chance to learn about the sun and stars as we study planets and constellations. The first grade students can see for themselves as they hold and manipulate physical items.
Using these materials in a hands on way really helps get students excited about science and helps them remember what they have learned.
I am excited about the discussions that will occur among the students as I ask posing questions, they make predictions and we observe and analyze data. What student would not be excited about science?
