Encouraging Scientific Thinkers - Science Activities for the Early Childhood Classroom


Event Description

Children are born with a natural curiosity for "figuring out" the world around them. Adults who support them in this learning are critical to them becoming confident scientific thinkers. This presentation will give teachers many practical examples of how to implement the Ohio Early Learning and Development Standards in their preschool environments. All areas of science, including scientific inquiry and application, life science, earth and space science, and physical science will be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will be introduced to the 5E model for planning and implementing interesting inquiry based science activities. Participants will be given the opportunity to plan sample lessons using this model. Ideas will also be shared for extending science throughout multiple curriculum areas.
