Learning Through Experimenting for Babies and Preschoolers

Did you know that young children think a lot like scientists?

        They make hypotheses.

        Do experiments. (sometimes on you!)

        Update their information based on the results.

        Run another test.

Babies and preschoolers are a lot like little scientists. They are excellent at creating a hypothesis and then testing it out against the evidence. They quickly learn from their experiments.

Discover how you can harness their natural curiosity in ways that encourage them to experiment. Pick up ideas from researchers and other preschool teachers for creating environments that engage children in ways that lead to learning.
