The vocabulary and subject matter of science is all around us and forms part of our daily conversations in math, history, geography, and all the various language arts studies. Observation, hypothesis, experimentation, data collection and analysis, and the forming of conclusions begins at a very early age and is an integral part of critical thinking, problem solving and communication.
We love science in 4th grade - from the building of geoboards to the exploration of nature to the basic elements of organisms to the moons and stars in outer space. Science is a subject which should inflame the heart, not just the intellect.
