Quick Overview

Science Learning in the Early Years offers both classroom
ideas and an understanding of how to use them effectively. Ashbrook emphasizes important science concepts in 40-plus
activities that are clearly presented and developmentally appropriate, connect
to national science learning objectives, and highlight safety concerns

This book is for all preschool and elementary teachers who wish they had a mentor who understood inquiry, young children, and the need for truly engaging science activities. For nearly three decades, teacher, columnist, and blogger Peggy Ashbrook has promoted the importance of high-quality experiences for children in prekindergarten through second grade. This collection of her writing for NSTA's elementary journal, Science and Children, is the next best thing to having her as your own personal guide to the challenges and fun of working with the youngest scientists.

Science Learning in the Early Years offers both classroom ideas and an understanding of how to use them effectively. The book is uniquely helpful because it recognizes that you're a generalist teaching all areas of the curriculum. Ashbrook emphasizes important science concepts in 40-plus activities that are clearly presented and developmentally appropriate, connect to national science learning objectives, and highlight safety concerns. Perhaps most important, Ashbrook shows how to group individual activities into an ongoing science unit so students can develop science inquiry skills over time.

Ashbrook the writer will inspire you even as Ashbrook the science teacher helps you develop a carefully planned course on appropriate concepts that are just right for your students.
