    Home Support:

    Here are a few things that you can do to support science instruction at home:

    • Show children examples of science around them.
    • Provide opportunities for your children to make observations, ask questions, experiment and tinker at home.
    • Ensure that students have easy access to science related materials at home(books, magazines, games, toys, etc.).
    • Take field trips to science related destinations (zoo, planetarium, museum, aquarium, etc.).
    • Use various objects around the house and build something with your child.
    • As you prepare dinner, engage your child in conversations about the math and science you utilize in cooking.
    • Watch science related television shows or movies and have discussions about the science that you observe.
