In my opinion scientific inquiry is not fully learned if the student is taught the science before they get to do a hands-on experiment and think about what has occurred. After all would the science book lie?
How can we expect our students to come up with new thoughts if we feed them everything before they get to the experiment?
Science in our household is going to be a mess of experiments, with theories abounding (and messes I guess!) and then information about the known facts shared in small snippets as I see them trying to come up with theories of their own.
So, have you thought about science?
