Does your child love to throw things? Set up an experiment together. Get different safe things for them to throw, like a scarf, rolled up socks, a paper cup, etc. Which one can they throw the farthest? Talk about what they notice.
See what your child is learning
When you help your child set up an experiment like this, you’re helping them to learn how to think like a scientist. This means thinking critically to test out ideas, seeing what happens, and then using what they have learned to find out even more.
