Who knew? Science lessons that are engaging and fun can improve children’s Language Arts and Math Scores. In a recent study, fourth grades were given 10, one hour Science lessons, by Scientist in the field. They learned about the reality and fun of Science all around us. Their scores in Math and LA improved, as a result. So, more Science to you!
Although this study was related to fourth grades, I think that we can apply its results to Kindergarten students as well. Think about that fun Science experiment that you as a teacher or mom did with your child. Just simply remembering it reveals how meaningful it was. From making volcanoes explode to watching eggs float-we can make Science experiences amazing for children!
