Let's do real science!

The first unit in the innovative Young Scientist series, Discovering Nature with Young Children guides teachers through an inquiry-based curriculum that builds on children's natural curiosity about the living world around them.

From indoor terrarium and planting projects to outdoor animal searches and habitat discussions, the step-by-step curriculum guide leads you through preparing yourself and your classroom; guiding children through both open and focused science explorations; and observing, assessing, and documenting their learning.

The comprehensive trainer's guide and video give teachers an in-depth look—and visual tour—of the complete Discovering Nature with Young Children curriculum. The guide takes teachers through the curriculum step-by-step with discussion plans, sample charts and forms, and extensive resource suggestions. The full-color video contains eight real-life vignettes of the curriculum in use in the classroom.

If you want to do serious science in your preschool classroom, this resource-rich curriculum gives you all the tools you need.
