    Hi Eleanor,

    Teddy raincoats is a lovely way to bring the Inquiry process to the infant classroom.

    The prompt is appropriate and visual – we don’t want teddy to get wet!

    The materials for investigation are easy to source and only small quantities are needed. Droppers can make it feel ‘sciencey’ and are easy to get if you save children’s medicine droppers.

    Pair work allows the children to chat to each other about what they think will happen and to share their predictions.

    Class discussion at the end leads to a ‘next step’ that is suitable and can be a new investigation.

    You can see this in English and Irish from Curious Minds.
