There are many subjects that everyone should be taught in school but I think one of the most important things that children need to learn is how to make sense of the world and thus they need to learn about the scientific method. They need never be scientists if that is not their calling but they simply need to understand how science works.

Science is not a collection of facts; it is a way of viewing and studying the world. Teaching the scientific method for kids does not expect them to reason as miniature adults, but kids can use a simplified version of the scientific method to explore their world.
  1. Ask a question.
  2. Learn as much as you can about it.
  3. Come up with a hypothesis (a possible answer/solution).
  4. Do experiments to test what you believe.
  5. What did you find out?
  6. Tell others what you learned.
