Maria Bernardez, MD - Board Certifi cate, FAAP Pediatrician • Evelyn Santiago, FNP Finding answers together Science can be found everywhere, even in your own home or backyard. From earth science (rocks, minerals, weather) to biology (animals, plants) to chemistry (cooking, fireworks, cleaners) to physics (astronomy, movement, electricity, magnetism), the main underlying factor in all of the branches of science is critical thinking. As you're spending time with your children, ask them questions about things that you experience in your everyday life. For instance, "Why do you think that plant is green?" or "Where do clouds come from?" Many people get intimidated by asking these questions because they themselves don't know the answers. And that's OK. Your children aren't going to think any less of you for not knowing an answer. Instead, let them come up with their own hypothesis for their answer without you giving any input, or start a research notebook with them where you write down the questions togeth- er and look them up at the computer. Just teaching them to find answers on their own will put them that much further ahead in life. Jacqueline Bair is a science enthusiast and mother who lives with her family in Rosendale.
