Scientific Literacy in the Early Years

Activity 6 - Literacy and Comprehension

We have seen how literacy involves more than skill. It involves attitude as well. To bring this spirit to scientific questions, possibilities and tasks is the challenge of the teacher. We engage the young in exploring, questioning and wondering.

1. Which of the following do you find most suprising?
2. Which of the following do you find most delightful?
3. Which of the following would you find most challenging?

Make a list of any key ideas you wish to add to your thoughts about "scientific literacy."
