STEM for Little Sprouts: Connecting Science Through Children’s Literature (edWeb.net)
Early childhood professionals know that getting children excited about science is only part of the challenge. Today’s young learners need more than excitement and motivation – they need opportunities to actually DO more science on a daily basis. Steve Spangler shares his creative ideas and strategies to teach hands-on science through the medium of children’s literature. Participants will learn how to use elements of the storyline to enable students to think more like scientists. You’ll be ready to create a collection of STEM experiences your children will never forget.
