ARLINGTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#NSTAlt;/agt;–A newly expanded resource from NSTA
helps teachers build on children’s innate curiosity through 89
activities in life, Earth, and physical science. Rather than focusing on
science facts, teachers can encourage 3- to 7-year-olds to make
discoveries of their own with A
Head Start on Science, Second Edition: Encouraging a Sense of Wonder

Like the popular first edition, this book is a treasure trove of ways
for children in preK through grade 2 to explore the natural world
through lively opportunities for science learning. Activities range from
making magnetic mazes to creating sand sculptures to building bird
nests. The activities are suitable for use in preschools, elementary
schools, informal science settings, and home schools.

The book’s introduction serves as a short course in what to consider
when teaching science to young children. Each lesson comes with a
follow-up activity, connections to centers and children’s literature,
and assessment guides. Family pages written in English and Spanish let
the fun—and the learning—continue at home. Each activity also supports
both the 2015 Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework and the Next
Generation Science Standards.
