All About Everything

Welcome to Hidden Villa. Are you ready for our three challenges?

1. Take Care.

2. Try Something New.

3. HAVE FUN!

 

Trying new things is very important for exploring the world around you! Lets first learn a few important scientific tools so we can make observations, ask questions, and make connections on our journey.

 


 

I Notice, I Wonder…

Lets practice using our prompts!

1. First make observations using, “I notice…”

2. Now lets ask some questions about an object using, “I wonder…”

3. Finally lets pull everything together and make some connections using, “it reminds me of…”

These are the essential tools of a scientist!
