Children as scientists
Children in the Rainbow Room (4) have been talking about bones and bodies ever since Classmate X. broke his foot. They have come to the studio a couple of times with their teacher Cris. In talking to them, we are trying to figure out how to support them, and to do that, we need to find out what their intention is in this exploration. Our hypothesis right now is that the children are forming understandings about systems within our bodies.

Gabriella said "You have to wear socks to keep your veins warm. My Daddy told me if you don't wear socks, your veins will disappear."
Then R. said "If you swallow a seed, a plant will grown inside your body." Can we draw that? I said.
