For several years, many of the authors' new-school-year resolutions have revolved around a common theme: improving the introduction of inquiry skills to young (kindergarten through second grade) learners, particularly students with limited English-language skills. After experiencing many partial successes, they have found that following easy-to-implement workshop activities to be just what they needed to make their resolutions come true. The activities focus on observation and communication skills. These skills not only help to focus young children's natural curiosity but also build a solid foundation for future scientific learning.
