A book titled Natural Philosophy For Children Part. 1 and 2 was written by a school principal named Mary.A.Swift, in 1839.
The preface of the book quotes, " Natural Philosophy explains the reasons for things"
Questions asked include, 'How do you know?", "Where is the air?"

I recommend a book that two of my colleagues allowed me to print - it is a comprehensive, elaborate book on how to teach students about the inquiry process from early age :
Book title: Q TASKS:How to Empower Students to Ask Questions and Care About AnswersAuthors: Carol Koechlin & Sandi Zwaan
It includes teaching strategies, lesson plans and worksheets/printouts.
