Engineering is a hot topic in education. The all-important E in STEM, engineering is a rapidly growing interest for young learners the umbrella term for many sought-after jobs in the sciences. With such a big reputation, the prospect of teaching engineering can be daunting to many early childhood educators, but when stripped down to its most basic elements, engineering is easy. Take, for example, one of the most important parts of it: motion.Lesson Planning Science Technology
Incorporating art in the classroom setting can often be a challenge. Often times it is used as a filler or it does not add value to the lesson it is paired with; however, that does not have to be the case.Math Art Science Technology
All sorts of science experiments exist for children to participate in, and they love all of them science experiments they do have the chance to participate in! Their naturally curious minds keep them engaged during experiments, making it easy to introduce them to scientific concepts.Science
As we grow up, we form many misconceptions in our minds. You may have heard that lightning never strikes in the same place twice or that mother birds abandon their chicks if they are touched by humans—these are two common misconceptions. No direct harm usually results from believing misconceptions, but if there is a way to prevent as many misconceptions from forming in children's minds as possible, shouldn't we take it?
From birth, all children are scientists; however, children exemplify what it means to be a scientist during the early childhood years. Children are innately curious about the world around them, causing exploration to occur. This exploration of the world has children naturally engaging in acts of observation, manipulation, and experimentation. So how can educators and guardians help their little scientists learn more about the world?Science
STEM is a vital part of children’s education, but what should you do if there are children who don’t seem to find interest in STEM concepts?Math Lesson Planning Science Technology
Designated times and activities are usually set in place for teaching children one subject at a time. Math time might be at 9am, science time might be at 10am, art time might be at 11am, and so on. These subjects are taught separately, but they don't have to be.Math Art Science Technology
Year after year, it’s the same: you arrive on the first day of school to a classroom full of strangers and awkward silence. Try these activities to deviate from the usual get-to-know-you games and help children learn the names of their classmates while learning STEAM concepts.Math Art Lesson Planning Science Technology
For teachers looking to build a well-rounded curriculum, Gryphon House authors have used their science and early childhood education expertise to develop more thoughtful science experiments for kids and toddlers. Our collection of experiments helps to encourage children to grow into young investigators through hands-on exploration exercises. For younger children, our preschool science experiments offer avenues to leverage children’s curiosity and energy. Through these exploration activities, children learn investigative concepts by moving around, and through traditional observation.
By using active, engaging science activities, children are encouraged to experiment, discover, and analyze. With Gryphon House’s books and free resources, educators can integrate STEM methods into daily or weekly activities. Our available resources also lead parents through easy to follow science activities for toddlers, in order to help foster their child’s continued science education at home. Take advantage of children’s natural curiosity through our free, hands-on science activities. Our explorations cultivate young minds by encouraging children to question and explore their surroundings.
