Gryphon House announces “Hands-On Science and Math: Fun, Fascinating Activities for Young Children”
Science and math activity book lays groundwork for complex STEM concepts
Lewisville, N.C. – Celebrated Florida educator Beth R. Davis debuts well-researched math and science activities for pre-K through second grade in her first book with Gryphon House, Inc., the leading publisher of educational resources for teachers. “Hands-On Science and Math: Fun, Fascinating Activities for Young Children,” offers more than 40 full-color activities that allow teachers to infuse math and science teaching throughout the school day.
The simple experiments, done with easy-to-find materials, help educators plan engaging science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) lessons that will excite children and foster critical thinking.
The science and math activities have been piloted and researched at Davis’s Kids for Kids Academy in Miami, Florida, as well as in her research from Florida International University.
“In my research, I have found that children exposed to hands-on science and math instruction gain greater subject-matter understanding than students exposed to only book learning or traditional worksheets,” Davis said. “That helps preschoolers enter kindergarten prepared for success.”
“Hands-On Science and Math: Fun, Fascinating Activities for Young Children” (ISBN 978-0-87659-649-4, 150 pp., $14.95) will be available for purchase in July 2015. Educators may preorder books here. For writers interested in e-galley copies, please email firstname.lastname@example.org,
