I am a secondary certified teacher who frequently visits the elementary classes in my school. I find myself answering the same questions for students and their teachers. These articles are based on those questions.
How does water get from the roots of a plant to the leaves?
How is it possible for igneous rocks to be different colors?
What IS gravity?
What's the difference between a rock and a mineral?
What's the difference between an observation and an inference?
What's the difference between a fruit and a vegetable?
These are all BIG ideas in science
