This text is appropriate for any Early Childhood Social Studies course. Based on Dewey's theory of learning, this text consists of 8 clear, concise, and useable guides for planning meaningful learning experiences in the social studies for children in childcare settings, nursery or preschool programs, Head Start, and kindergartens. Primary grades can also engage in active experiential learning too, as each experience is extended to the early primary grades. This is the only activity book that includes experiences in history, geography, economics, and living in a democracy together (or "in one book").show more
