Science in Early Childhood Education: Designing Curriculum to Meet Standards with Evidence-Based Practices (DVD)
Young children need hands-on experiences to construct concepts about physical science. Teachers in this video provide a variety of physical science activities that meet science standards and extend those activities to promote higher level thinking. Children?s levels of scientific thinking and the scientific process as it relates to developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum are highlighted. You will also see how science can be integrated throughout the classroom.
The accompanying PowerPoint CD guides viewers through theoretical concepts introduced in the DVD, highlights other developmentally appropriate science activities, and shows how to create materials featured in the video through step-by-step pictures and descriptions.
