A group of kindergarteners and fellow first graders turned one school hallway into a forest as they endeavored to learn about animals and science inquiry. Not just any mural, this culmination of a month-long project was based on observing, questioning, asking field trips, conducting library research (including the internet) and asking experts. The students developed skills in forming questions about what they thought they Knew, Wanted to know, and had Learned (K-W-L). This project showed that very young learners can do science—and do it well.
