  1. The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us?

    This is the first in-depth look at the important connections between the arts and science specifically for early childhood education (Preschool-Year 3). Highlighting their many commonalities such as the processes involved in creative problem-solving, the author draws on what we can learn from Leonardo da Vinci as the supreme artist-scientist. Every chapter begins with a vignette of Leonardo and relates his thinking to the development of children's ideas in the arts and STEM (STEAM). This fresh look at the interdisciplinary connections of the arts and science offers early childhood teachers and administrators a spectrum of tools for connecting the creative arts (art, movement, drama and music) to the STEM movement, 21st-century skills and developmentally appropriate skills.

  5. Stepping into STEM

    The Stepping into STEM series is a collection of dynamic resources that provide guided lessons to integrate project-based learning into your science, technology, engineering and maths curricula. Each unit provides background information for teachers and students and moves from teacher-directed activities towards more open-ended activities. The culminating activity in each unit allows students to design their own unique "invention" or conduct an experiment of their own creation. Students will be challenged to work collaboratively, using a process that helps them "step into STEM" with greater competence and confidence. Each book in the Stepping into STEM series offers unique activities and opportunities for exploration.
