What is Science?

In kindergarten our first science unit is all about learning how scientists study the world around them. We are learning to ask questions about science, make observations, share information, and solve problems. We also learn all about the tools used to make observations, to measure, and to record information. 
I send a letter home to parents introducing the new science unit and we read What Is Science?
Charlotte the Scientist is Squished is another cute story about a little scientist that loves to experiment but just can't find the space to conduct her experiments.
This science reader matched the version we read for shared reading. We keep all paper books in our book boxes to use during reading workshop.
What is a scientist? is such a good book to include in this unit. After reading we made this anchor chart and illustrated what a scientist does in science journals. 
How cute are these illustrations?!
We glued this sentence frame in our science journal and illustrated.
We learned about science tools, like the hand lens, and observed fall leaves.

After learning what a scientist does, it is time to do your first classroom science experiment!
