Science Experiences for the Early Childhood Years : An Integrated Approach
Updated to reflect the National Science Education Standards, this leading text, takes a hands-on approach to science learning by providing a solid theoretical foundation and many practical activities. A truly unique quality of the text is the science-concept-based units that offer teachers a way to integrate science knowledge and processes into the whole curriculum (including art, math, music, creative movement, creative thinking, community, and family relations).
