As a future teacher I believe teaching science is very important because it is a part of our daily life. Everything we do in life and deal with has to do with science. During the preschool years is when you get the children motivated about teaching them science because that is the age when they are curious to know "how things happen and why?". There minds are full of questions and answers. Also, science provides our children with valuable ideas, skills, and future career choices. Not many schools now and days teach science the way it was taught to me growing up. I remember doing science fair projects and minor group projects in class that were fun to do. In the school system now I don't see much of that happening the schools are most interested in the TAKS and teaching children how to pass the test. In order to make our children lives more fun they should be more exposed and aware of science. Teaching children about the different types of rocks or why the weather changes can make an impact in a child's life. They will be able to distinguish the different types of rocks and know why the weather changes. They will have a basic understanding about the world around us. With the way our technology is advancing now and days our students need to understand how global warming affects our community and about the different types of cures for illnesses. As a teacher I am sure I will have lots of students that there future career choices will be doctors, engineers, or biologist and those students will have to know science in order to major in those areas. With our students being knowledgeable in science they willl be able to protect their health and safety throughout their lives. As a future teacher I want to be able to hold that key to teach my students about science and why science is so important in their daily lives. Teaching my students to understand science will help them appreciate science and related to the world around them.
