Teaching STEM In The Early Years
Stimulate and engage children's thinking as you integrate STEM experiences throughout your classroom. These engaging, developmentally appropriate activities maximize children's learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Each experience combines at least two STEM disciplines and incorporates materials and situations that are interesting and meaningful to children. Use the 90 + activities in this book to discover the many possibilities for teaching STEM to young children, including ideas for cooking, art and music activities, block play, and sensory table exploration, field trips and outdoor time. With the growing focus on early childhood mathematics and science, this book is a much-needed resource for every early childhood classroom. It will encourage you to think differently about STEM education, and you will see how easy it is to accommodate curriculum goals and learning standards in math and science activities.
