From their very first day in school, students are actively engaged in learning to view the world scientifically. That means encouraging them to ask questions about nature and to seek answers, collect things, count and measure things, make qualitative observations, organize collections and observations. Getting into the spirit of science and liking science are what count most. For instance, students might examine how moving objects are affected when pushed or pulled or what a seed looks like when it starts to grow. These activities stimulate curiosity and engage students in taking in their environment and the workings of nature.
