Overview

In this webinar, we will discuss how to infuse science into the Toddler classroom through the indoor and outdoor environment. Children of this age have an unconscious absorbent mind. They are in a sensitive period for movement, language, and order. Introducing them to science activities is appropriate and necessary, not to mention delightful! By exposing children to the richness of the natural world, we prepare them to be future stewards of the earth.

This webinar will include a discussion of the characteristics of the children we serve. Examples will be provided of Practical Life activities in which children care for plants and animals. We will also consider Language activities that children use to identify and learn the names of plants and animals within their environments. And, you will come away with plentiful ideas for creating materials for your own classroom.

Learner Outcomes

  • Understand how children ages 18 – 36 months learn and interact with science materials
  • Understand how to incorporate science curriculum and materials into the classroom environment
  • Generate their own ideas on how to create science materials into their classrooms
