In science as in any other subject, children learn in an incremental manner. In early grades (K-3), science should be fun and stimulating, designed to make children explore and wonder about the world; to learn to ask questions, and seek answers. Backyard birds, magnets, the solar system, simple machines, and dinosaurs are topics which have intrigued children for years. In grade 4 the approach becomes more rigorous. Students start to ask quantitative questions and develop the ability to determine if they have enough information to answer them.
