Science Conversations for Young Learners

Creating a concept map is a great way to help students share their known vocabulary in science and to introduce new vocabulary. I have used this idea before in older grades but have not done so in kindergarten. I do believe that with the way you presented it, students could be very successful.
I also wanted to compliment you on writing the question mark beside questionable thoughts. Then you used a book, not the internet to find the answer right away. All to often our children think we just google it and sometimes that is alright. However, I love how you showed them that answers are found in books and reading can be enjoyable. This is a great way to teach across the curriculum.
