Science Standard Module Training
Children have a natural sense of wonder and curiosity. Scientific inquiry, for young children, is asking questions and seeking answers based on their natural curiosity. Children learn by being actively engaged with hand on experiences, real objects and natural occurrences. In this full day session, participants will actively explore the Science Standard. Through hands on activities, participants will gain practical ideas to use in the classroom to enhance preschool science inquiry.
