I think a great way to have students ask questions is to model the technique. I teach first grade and have to first teach my students the difference between a question and a statement.

I think preparation is important to this topic. The more you are comfortable (due to practice, education, and professional development), the more confident you will be! Just remember, science is naturally engaging to children and mistakes WILL happen. don't be afraid to admit them and plan for them.
