PreK: Observing with Senses

2: Quick and Slow Changes to Land

5: Human Impact on Environments
Walk through the exhibits with empathy.
Think about what it was like to be an early human.
Think about how earthquakes and volcanoes effect the communities close by.
Think about how choices we make are effecting different organisms.
Go to a new exhibit you’ve never been to (or rarely visit). What questions do you have as you walk through? See if you can ask questions starting with all the words: WHAT, WHO, WHY, WHERE, WHEN, HOW.
Then see if you can read and find the answers.
