Product Description:

Scientific inquiry for pre-school and kindergarten? Can you think of a more inquisitive group of students? Take their natural curiosity about the world around them and add activities that align to Next Generation Science Standards. Dig into life science with plants and animals, earth science with rocks and magnets, physical science with simple machines and motion, even finding science in art and music. This book feels written for classroom science teachers, but the activities and lessons are home friendly for the parent-teacher as well. As you flip through the large book, you see lesson plans, standards and assessments. I particularly like how the assessments are observational and conversational. This approach also expands the scientific vocabulary of young students! It sounds serious, but really, this is a way to give a parent structure for “doing science” at a time when their focus is on learning to read, write, and perform math basics. The topics are things kids are interested in: types of animal noses, variety of pinecones, ancient treasures, pulleys, marble marvels, and loads more! While structured, the lessons are definitively hands-on and interactive for the student. 108 lessons in 7 main chapters. Assessment forms are in the back, as well as a listing of children’s books that work with each chapter. This book will last your family or classroom a long time. ~Sara
