This is because on the one hand, science is observation and exploration of the world around us, including questioning, investigating, analyzing, and drawing conclusions. On the other hand, children are often eager to know and they are intuitive. They try to understand the reasons why things happen and busy looking for answers. In other words, they seem to have a natural aptitude for science. Thus, children should be actively involved in the learning process of science.
