Book Description

March 4, 2005 1401872328 978-1401872328 1
Science Activities A to Z gives teachers and parents a detailed lesson plan format of process-oriented science activities for young children ages one and up. The easy-to-understand, hands-on activities promote the development of problem solving and the ability to make predictions. Each section helps teachers and parents in finding science activities for a theme-based curriculum, to incorporate a letter of the week, or to provide a spur-of-the-moment filler idea. Many activity choices are given for each targeted alphabet letter. The "Helpful Hints" section shares techniques for carrying out the activities-all based on the authors many years experience working with young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Science Activities for Young Ones, Easy! June 10, 2011
This is a really easy to follow book with simple science activities for kids ages 2-5. It uses mostly stuff you have around the house, requires very little planning to pull off most experiments and keeps the kids wanting more! The developmental goals include making comparisons, classifying objects, making observations and a ton more! Any parent, babysitter, older brother/sister can assist with these activities. My kids look forward to doing our daily science activities and I'm thrilled to be able to share this with them!
