How do children learn about science? They learn it best by living it every day! In this session, participants will acquire strategies for creating an environment that encourages children to learn science through exploration of their world. Join KET to learn how the science inquiry process will incorporate fun, hands-on science into the daily schedule. These activities are built on children's natural sense of curiosity, wonder, and discovery; creating an interest in science that will build a foundation for school success. Online resources and activities for science will be highlighted.
