“I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me…”, so goes the poem ‘My Shadow‘ by Robert Louis Stevenson. My 2-year-old likes to chase her shadow when we go out walking but my elder daughter wants to know where shadows come from…
Think for a minute…
Now, what did that feel like? What did you think about? How did you make yourself think? What did you do in order to think? Why am I asking you all these weird questions?!?
Think about it – have you ever thought, before, about how you think? My 6-year-old thinks there might be a computer inside her head. Do you think she’s right?
Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and my 2-year-old is fascinated! She likes to explore her own body when she’s in the bath. Her favourite body part is nipples but she’s noticed that Mummy’s and Daddy’s bodies are different from hers and different from each other.
So, what are the main differences between male and female human bodies? And what changes happen to our bodies when we grow up? Let’s find out!
Love is an emotion (or a strong feeling) that shows how much we like or enjoy someone or something. A person who feels love really, extremely, ever so much likes another person or an animal or a thing. For example, I love the people in my family and my cat and I also love singing!
Love is important because it keeps groups of people (like families) together and makes them want to look after each other.
But how do we feel it? What happens inside our bodies to make us feel love?
It’s British Science Week, so here at Simple Scimum’s house we’re thinking about all things science. But what exactly is science? And how do we know when we’re doing it?
