Early Childhood Science Education; Acknowledging and Valuing Differing Cultural Understandings.
Fleer, Marilyn
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v21 n3 p11-15 Sep 1996
Discusses the need for early childhood professionals to depart from a narrow framing of early childhood science experiences based on Western perspectives and to seek out a spectrum of cultural views that influence children's scientific thinking. Describes differences between Western and Aboriginal science and promotes broadened understandings of ways of constructing science experiences for children. (BGC)
