Early childhood professionals know that getting children excited about science is only part of the challenge. Today’s young learners need more than excitement and motivation – they need opportunities to actually DO more science on a daily basis. Steve Spangler shares his creative ideas and strategies to teach hands-on science through the medium of children’s literature. Viewers will learn how to use elements of the storyline to enable students to think more like scientists. You’ll be ready to create a collection of STEM experiences your children will never forget.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK through elementary teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
