ECE 350 Science and Technology for Young Children

Candidates will use current research, theories, and practices regarding the early development of scientific understandings and scientific reasoning. Strategies for supporting children’s exploration and understanding of the world through inquiry-based, hands-on activities, and integrated teaching strategies will be used.

Science learning at this level will focus on preparing environments for using the five senses to explore a wide range of objects/phenomena and their properties to identify patterns, testing children’s own ideas in a systematic way using a variety of materials, reasoning and arguing from evidence, making thinking public and critiquing the thinking of others, creating and interpreting increasingly complex text and participating in and supporting a culture of talk.
