School children and their teacher in a high school science class2.  Put science to the test!  Observation is a large part of science.  Bring in fresh materials: rocks, shells, feathers, plants, etc. and allow students to make observations.  I am thinking in my fourth grade room this semester I am going to set up one easy science experiment a week and allow students to observe.  We take for granted they know what happens when a glass of water is left out for a week or a plant is not given water.  Set it up and allow them to document the changes.
