The Early Years: The Matter of Melting

by: Peggy Ashbrook

This month's Early Years column reveals how establishing a shared language through experiences can help young students and teachers exchange ideas and information about science concepts. The experiences that occur as part of this month's activity exploring changes in states of matter are common in many cultures and childhoods. Bringing these experiences into the classroom makes them part of the classroom culture and provides an opportunity to teach vocabulary and begin building your shared language.
