Do Ants Have Teeth? Teaching Science Through Meaningful Inquiry That Engages Children’s Minds

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Project-based investigations enable children to actively explore topics that are relevant to their lives. Children learn to communicate, think mathematically, test hypotheses, and think like scientists. These methods of learning help children build on process skills that are critical to future school success. Participants will explore the many ways in which children observe and explore, make connections, solve problems, organize information, and communicate and represent their ideas within a classroom community that is engaged in a long-term, project-based investigation.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to:
  • Discover how in-depth, project-based investigations support content learning in the preschool classroom.
  • Learn strategies for incorporating science learning experiences throughout investigative studies.
