Pre-school Science Class
It is as simple as reading carefully chosen books. The above 'Read and Wonder' books are sweet and educational. I wouldn't have thought of them as science if it weren't for the little silver sticker on the outside that says " An Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children."
I just liked the pretty pictures at first. But then...
Katie and I learned that the daddy penguin sits on the egg while mommy is off swimming and eating.
We learned that a Goose dances like a ballerina.
We learned that science is interesting especially when it is written well for children.
My Goose Betsy by Trudi Braun
The Emperor's Egg by Martin Jenkins
I'm sure they are in your local library.
Science for Believers
Genesis 1: 1-31
31 And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
