The scientific process for toddlers is similar to the process for infants, however, it contains more responsibility and awareness of self and environment. This awareness allows toddlers to make real hypotheses and investigations. Activities that were once very simple, can now become complex for the toddler just by a simple question or curiosity.
Let’s break down the scientific process for toddlers.
Nathaniel makes an observation that the blocks can be stacked, then creates a hypothesis and investigates it. When he analyzes the outcome of his experiment, he finds that the blocks have fallen over and he is displeased. Nathaniel communicates this by crying and alerting the attention of his caregiver or teacher.
While simple and common, this experience was a scientific discovery for Nathaniel which will build upon his prior experiences with blocks. This may also teach Nathaniel that block towers are fragile, and he may be cautious when classmates come near his block tower. These experiences yield a great deal of information for toddlers.
