Lewisville, N.C. – Gryphon House, Inc. announces Exploring the Science of Sounds, a resource for activities that engage science, technology, engineering, arts, and math – STEAM – through the science of sound. The book features innovative activities that engage young children in scientific inquiry, while providing a crucial foundation for later learning.
Abigail Flesch Connors brings teachers and caregivers a book that indulges young children’s curiosity and encourages them to explore, listen, observe, experience, think, and discuss sounds and the tools for making them. The playful activities are ideal for teachers and caregivers of children aged 3-7, helping students uncover the science of music and sound using common classroom materials.
“Introducing preschool and kindergarten students to STEAM is crucial for a more holistic and engaging learning experience throughout early development,” said Connors. “I wrote this book to show teachers how a creative and inventive approach to STEAM teaching can result in playful activities that enhance learning and leverage existing classroom materials and curricula.”
