Science of Materials: A Case Study of Intentional Teaching in the Early Years
Hackling, Mark; Barratt-Pugh, Caroline
Teaching Science, v58 n2 p14-19 Jun 2012
Australia's Early Years Learning Framework and leading international researchers argue for more intentional and purposeful teaching of science in the early years. This case study of exemplary practice illustrates intentional teaching of science materials which opened-up learning opportunities in literacy and number. Student-led hands-on exploration of materials supported with carefully scaffolded discourse and representation with some peer tutoring provided rich learning opportunities for these pre-primary/foundation students. (Contains 5 figures.)
