*Boston Children’s Museum STEM Sprouts Teaching Guide
Children have a natural sense of wonder and curiosity. As children seek answers, they will plan, observe, predict, and form conclusions. Children’s experiences with scientific inquiry form the basis for further investigation and thought. Learning through inquiry requires both the child’s curiosity and adult guidance and is incorporated in all areas of learning.
