The experimentation process should be designed as a co-construction, with children and educational experts working side by side. Children form their own picture of the world with the support and collaboration of their peers. The idea behind metacognition is that children become aware of the learning process. This can be achieved through reflection, additional activities, and links to other areas of education. During the experimentation phase, it is important to build upon what the children already know and engage them in a dialog so that ultimately, they will learn to think independently.
