Early Childhood Science and Engineering Resource Reviews
What is best practice in early childhood science teaching? What should young children be learning about science? How can we best support teachers as they work to build a science rich curriculum in their classrooms? Our interest forum was created to provide an ongoing discussion of these important questions. Over the years many books and resources in other formats have been published that attempt to provide answers to these questions. Some are more successful than others. We are going to use this space to post reviews of resources and hopefully at the same time communicate a set of ideas about inquiry-based science teaching and appropriate content for young children. Please share your thoughts about these reviews, experiences you have had using these resources, and any suggestions for books you would like us to review in the future.
The reviews will be posted as new posts.
