Inquiry-based learning requires that children investigate questions about how the world works. Investigations need to be relevant to the children. In investigations children are actively engaged in gathering evidence which will enable them to understand better the scientific phenomenon being studied and to find possible answers to their initial question.

Investigations are most effective

when children work in groups. Social interaction helps them share their ideas and interpretations of what they see, and to construct scientific understanding with other children.  Working in groups also helps children to develop social skills such as teamwork, tolerance and respect for the opinion of others.
