STEAM is education focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Science is everywhere—from animals, plants and the natural world, to health and nutrition, to tools and machines, and more! Children are naturally curious about their world and sciences encourage their love of exploration. Young children use trial and error, an important part of the scientific process. Adults can encourage curiosity by asking questions and allowing children to investigate many different possibilities. How do you think that works? Why do you think giraffes have long necks? What tool would help us do this job? What will happen to this ice cube when we put it in hot water?For daily learning activities, visit: www.inghamisd.org/ouracademics/instruction/literacy/ ...

SCIENCE EVERY DAY Science is everywhere—from animals, plants and the natural world, to health and nutrition, to tools and machines, and more! Children are naturally curious about their world and science encourages their love of exploration. • INFANTS: learn about the world and properties of objects by using all of their senses. When they drop a toy and you pick it up, they are learning about cause and effect. • TODDLERS: are trying to find out how the world works. As they use their five senses they are making sense of their world. Encourage your toddler to try things out. What will happen if you put a stick in a mud puddle? As your child looks closely at things in nature, give names to objects found. • PRESCHOOLERS: use trial and error, an important part of the scientific process. Adults can encourage curiosity by asking questions and allowing children to investigate many different possibilities. How do you think that works? Why do you think giraffes have long necks? What tool would help us do this job? What will happen to this ice cube when we put it in hot water?For daily learning activities visit: inghamgreatstart.org/ingham-early-learning-calendar/ ...
