First Day Morning Reflection

The three words I thought of when I heard the word- SCIENCE were, learning-animals-earth.

This morning I was exposed to the idea that the conclusions we reach in experimentation are not finalities. We may find out that the hypothesis is right or wrong, but that is not the end of the process. We will find more observations and make summaries of these observations pushing along our thoughts in countless directions. Paul said that the brain is not happy with's actually what summary you can conclude that will take you to your next question. I loved hearing that when we were babies we were experimenting, and creating summaries... this makes a lot of sense to me because the only way babies learn is by doing- the same concept I prefer to have my students using to master science learning.
