How to Support Your Scientist

How you can support your student's development as a scientist:

Successful scientists are also successful readers, mathematicians, artists, and writers.  In addition to encouraging your student to complete their weekly science homework assignments, you can also support their developement by encourgaing them to practice their math, reading, writing, and artistic skills.  Below are some suggestions:

  • Have your student read a book of their choice at home.
  • Have them practice writing a summary of what they learned in science class that day at school.
  • Have them practice finding examples of science in their daily life.  (If we learned about energy in school that day, how does your student use energy at home?)
  • Have them find examples of science in the news.
  • If your student has access to technology, have them practice their science skills using the weblinks on the side bar to the right.
