Follow the Students
Let the natural curiosity of your students guide your teaching.
Do not be afraid to set aside your lesson plans to seize that "teachable moment"
Embrace the unknown and do not expect to know all the answers
Science is messy:
All kids can "do" science
Curiosity must be nurtured and utilized
Science is about the unknown, not the known
Ask questions you do not know the answer to
Do not seek out an answer to prove you were right
Expect to learn something new every day
Do not be afraid to fail
