Children’s books and hands-on investigations bring math and science concepts to life!

Young children are naturally interested in the patterns and processes occurring in the world around them. They are beginning to learn about the changes happening each day, month, and season. They are starting to ask questions about the environment and world beyond. They are anxious to explore the creatures in their own backyard.

Math and Science Investigations supports young children’s natural curiosity and encourages them to explore what happens around them. Hands-on investigations help children learn the skills, concepts, and standards of mathematics, science, language, and literacy – all at the same time – using some of their favorite books. Themes include: Exploring Spaces (and Places!); What Comes Next?; Out and About; and Growing and Changing.

Each investigation includes:

  • General introduction to the theme
  • Ideas to start you thinking about math, science, language, and literacy
  • Vocabulary related to the topic
  • Children’s book suggestions
