Ask and seek out answers to questions about objects and events with the assistance of interested adults.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
conduct simple investigations, with guidance about what to look for or compare (e.g., a leaf hunt using samples of leaves to find others that are the same shape/color).
determine which objects sink or float in the water table (e.g., feather, cork, bottle, pencil, pine cone, string, nail, marbles, key, soap, eraser) and what the floaters/sinkers have in common.
answer “what if” type questions (e.g., what will happen if materials are mixed together?).
ask questions about materials and the environment (e.g., “Why is it wet?”).
work in small groups of 2 or 3 children on a common goal (e.g., look for a specific object in the classroom or yard and explore it together).
