This is a fun-filled collection of easy-to-do activities that will encourage children's curiosity and sense of wonder. Children are natural scientists, drawn to wonder, exploration, discovery, and analysis. Science: Not Just for Scientists! gives you simple ideas to open up the world of discovery to young children. Through open-ended explorations, you will discover how to cultivate children's natural curiosity by asking simple questions: How? When? Where? And the most famous of all children's questions: Why? The hands-on activities will empower children to question, experiment, and develop abstract reasoning skills. Children will explore patterns, cause and effect, size and scale, change and growth, energy, and how things work. Easy to follow, step-by-step activities lead children and their caregivers through a new world of discovery.
