FUNdamental Science (K-5) For years educators have stressed that students learn better “by doing” – especially in the sciences. Students of all ages learn more science-content and skills when they engage in investigation and discovery using everyday materials and the basic equipment of science. Inquiry based learning builds critical thinking skills which are important to decision making in all aspects of our children’s lives. Our carefully designed inquiry centered lessons capture children’s natural curiosity and help engage them in observation, measurement, identification of properties, and experimentation involving life, earth, environmental and physical science concepts.
