Science gives us a way of observing, wondering about and understanding natural and physical phenomena. Science is an important achievement of human civilisation that needs to be shared with the future generations. Most of us who have worked with children have witnessed their capacity for keen observations and insightful questions about the world around them. Such qualities are crucial for engaging in processes of science. Given this, how can we introduce ideas from science to children while also drawing on these innate abilities that they possess? Here I wish to share a framework suggested by the educationist Eleanor Duckworth (Duckworth 2006) that can be useful and can help us reinforce children’s learning in science as well as support the pedagogical practice of teachers and educators.
