Green, Moira D.
This book uses a child-initiated, whole language approach to help children have fun while exploring the world of science. The activities are divided into 23 units. Each unit begins with an "Attention Getter," the purpose of which is to introduce the unit to children in a way that grabs their attention, stimulates their interest, and creates excitement about the discoveries they will be making. Activities in this book range across the curriculum and include: science, math, movement, language arts, multicultural diversity, dramatic play, social studies, and motor and cognitive development. Units include: Color Capers, Woodworks, Reflections, Feather Frenzy, Hot, Warm, and Cold, Shadow Shenanigans, Thingamajigs, Fluid Forms, Sound Makers and Conductors, The Five Senses, Magnificent Magnifiers, Kitchen Kaboodle, Soap Science, Air and Wind, Good Grief! It's Gravity, Seed-Sational, Outer Space, Diggable Dirt, Fat-Tastic, Marvelous Motion, Fabulous Fungi, Tater Time, and Waxworks. (JRH)
