Performing Hands-on Scientific Tests 2. Gathering Information 3. Keeping A Record Why do you need to gather information? >Science is a combination of facts and applications. >Students need to know what has been proven to be true. >Provides the student with a knowledge base for further discovery. I recommend you read to your students or have them read about science at least twice a week during the school year. You can use: >Science-focused living books >Age-appropriate encyclopedias >Standard textbooks >Internet Research >YouTube Videos In the early years, you will read to your children. As their reading skills increase, have your students read more and more on their own. Tips for gathering information: >Choose the resources that interest your child. >Always orally discuss what the students have read.
