At first glance, you can see the value of Science Learning in the Early Years because it provides you with both 40-plus classroom activities and an understanding of how to use them with young students. The book shows you how to go beyond demonstrations to experiences that actually get children engaged. The activities focus on science concepts that are important, clearly presented, and developmentally appropriate; connect to the Next Generation Science Standards; and highlight safety concerns. The book also helps you group individual activities into an ongoing science unit so students can develop science inquiry skills over time.

When you start to immerse yourself in Science Learning in the Early Years, you’ll see that the value of this collection goes far beyond activities. The author is teacher, columnist, and blogger Peggy Ashbrook, who has been called a force in promoting high-quality science content for grades preK–2. Reading this book makes you feel like you’re talking with a fellow practitioner—one who’s been where you are and wants to share all the insights she’s gained. Meeting her through her writing is the next best thing to having her as your own personal guide to the challenges and fun of working with the youngest scientists.

NSTA Press produces classroom-ready activities, hands-on approaches to inquiry, relevant professional development, the latest scientific education news and research, assessment and standards-based instruction.
