Pressentation summary

This month we went beyond sink and float to talk about early childhood science learning with Dr. Andrew Shouse

*Key messages from the presentation:

*Children can understand abstract scientific concepts.

*Natural curiosity helps children to be keen observers.

*You don’t need deep science knowledge to teach science.

*You can focus on developing children’s scientific thinking skills.

*Conduct scientific explorations over an extended time. This will provide many examples and opportunities for

understanding a concept.

*Avoid less effective approaches: magic show science; hodgepodge or sporadic efforts; limiting science

activities to art (instead of conducting an investigation, for example); or keeping

science separated in a stand-alone center.
