Science is a subject best learnt by experiencing it. But today's science curriculum is based on a lot of factual information. It focuses more on the product of science like laws and formulae rather than the processes - exploration, observations and deductions.
Science activities in the early grades are what lay the groundwork for student understanding in the subject, and we’re talking hands-on lab experiments, not just learning from textbooks. Hands-on investigation through laboratory experimentation is the best way to introduce students to scientific inquiry, the process of asking questions and conducting experiments as a way to understand the natural world, which is the foundation of science education. Science Lab helps the students to bsorb science earning in comparison to tell-me and show-me methods. It helps them to develop critical thinking skills and discover scientific concepts through concrete understanding by using manipulatives, experiments and simulations
