Creating Your Science Curriculum


Event Description

Science exploration comes naturally to children. Yet many of the science activities that are available online and even in stores are actually not appropriate for preschoolers. This workshop is designed to give you a background in the types of science experiences that preschoolers should have access to in an early care program. You will explore the specific factors that determine whether an activity is appropriate for preschoolers. You will discuss setting up a science area and the 3 areas of science curriculum that should be part of every early childhood classroom: physical science, life science, and earth and space science.
