Working scientifically with WOW moments LIMITED
Limited Capacity filling up

Children are naturally inquisitive about the world around them and are often fascinated by everyday objects and experiences. Primary school teachers can use capitalise on this emotional engagement in order to develop their learning in science (McCrory, 2011). Using examples of WOW moments in the classroom this talk reflects on the crucial role teachers’ play in creating WOW moments to nurture children’s curiosity. The talk explores how WOW moments can provide opportunities for children to work scientifically and share their knowledge and understanding of science ideas.
