Sure, you know that children learn best through hands-on explorations. How does that work in a real classroom? With jam-packed days and mounting expectations, you’re pressed for time and pushed to follow standards-based curricula. It’s no wonder you struggle to incorporate STEAM activites each day.

Provoking Curiosity brings new and easy-to-execute STEAM learning experiences that encourage children to think, explore, and wonder. Each exploration builds on core ideas in the STEAM disciplines, develops higher-level thinking skills, and uses readily available materials in early childhood classrooms.

Learn how to use STEAM provocations throughout your busy day:

  • Jump-start the morning
  • Decompress and reenergize midday
  • Occupy children who complete assigned classroom work early
  • Incentivize children to complete a goal
  • Transition between the busier times of day and planned classroom work times
  • End the day building children’s collaboration and communication skills
