Thinking, about why and how things work comes naturally when children are encouraged to explore plants, animals, foods, weather, and the world around them. They make predictions, measure, compare weights and amounts, and draw conclusions from their experiments.
As children care for plants and animals, they learn to care for the earth's fragile environment, and grasp concepts about change and growth.
A table for experimenting and a display area for collections of leaves, shells or rocks are both key. Display reference materials, such as pictures, charts, and nature guidebooks. Safe green plants and healthy, safe animals round out the picture for this area.
Close adult supervision is required to ensure safety of young children. Projects with small parts and scissors with metal blades are for children ages 4 and older.
