Exploring Science in Early Childhood makes teaching a basic understanding of science skills to young people more achievable and successful than ever. In using this book to teach future educators, such top universities as Harvard recognize that the activities and applications presented in developmental sequence strongly support children learning. When put into practice, the approaches espoused in this edition will enable children to construct the concepts and skills imperative for learning a basic understanding of science. The same and skills also play an importance role in understanding mathematics and are closely related to reading and reading comprehension skills. Developed in cooperation with teachers at each developmental level, the concepts, skills, and instructional strategies are aligned with national standards in science, principles and standards for mathematics, and early childhood standards.
