Summary

Exploring Science and Mathematics in a Child s World provides a cohesive discussion of how to make learning science and mathematics both valuable and enjoyable for young children. Part I chapters are foundational and help students understand child development, interrelated mathematics and science processes, and Concept Exploration design. Part II activity chapters uniquely help students gain a solid understanding of scientific topics, while they learn how to implement activities with children using constructivist and inquiry-based methods. Blend of Science and Math Topics. This new text integrates science and math across the early childhood curriculum. It offers more mathematics coverage than other science activities texts. Entire chapters are devoted to measurement, problem solving, and organizing and representing data. More than 100 Concept Exploration Activities. Each Concept Exploration provides an overview of content knowledge for the preservice teacher, with an average of ten activities, resources for integration, safety tips, and more. The activities offer an effective way to engage children s curiosities about topics such as clouds, light and sound, and birds, while also assessing each child s learning experience. Integration of NSES and NCTM Standards. To familiarize students with the national standards for science and mathematics, each activity is correlated to these standards in a chart appearing at the beginning of the chapter.
