From Scientific Thinking

We have been reading and studying about scientists and what scientists do. We learned scientists draw and write about their thinking. Scientists also try experiments and continue to try new things. We also learned scientists use their senses to explore a topic. We worked with magnets this past week to explore our thinking and how they worked. We learned magnets did not stick to our tables, cabinents, and windows; however, we learned they stuck to the legs of the chair, the pencil sharpner, part of the scissors, and to the handle on the cabinents. It was great to listen to the children talking about what they discovered. We also came together to synthesize our information! It was such a fun time! We will continue to talk about scientists over the next few weeks.
