For young children, science encompasses those activities where they can directly observe and manipulate physical properties.
The tactile element within the scientific experience is paramount to your little one acquiring information about their world.
With minimal adult intervention, your little one is free to explore and create the interactions they desire.
This significantly affects their development because it encourages autonomous functioning.
At this age, it is the process, rather than the product, that results in a more meaningful learning experience. During our week of prairies, we talked about prairie grass and its use for different creatures. Then, we used clay, blades of grass, and our imaginations, to create our very own prairies!
