Ralph Waldo Emerson once said : ” All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better”.
Children have a natural tendency to observe and explore the world around them. They are curious and trying to understand “What causes the rain” or “Why volcanos erupt” or “Why some things float and some sink”. They seek answers and this is where Science is very important to capitalize on the kid’s natural curiosity.
Just like how kids should read and write stories and play sport, similarly they should engage in developmentally appropriate scientific experiments. It encourages them to understand the world, collect and organize data, test and conclude results and teach them to form their own opinion based on their own research.
Science experiments are fun learning games which would delight any kid.
