I love the two books I have in this series. I hope to teach this unit in full next year, but have used parts of the series in the past. This book covers early engineering concepts, something that will be new for many teachers in the Next Generation Science Standards that are coming our way. It also uses inquiry based science instruction which I really value. This approach teaches even very young children to think like scientists as they learn to wonder about the world around them and reason using evidence to support their thinking.I think this could easily be used by teachers in schools, child care centers or home based programs.
This is a great resource for early childhood educators - toddlers through kindergarten. School age teachers as well, will find valuable gems to enhance the block play experience in their classroom.
Great book especially if you are interested in Early Childhood Education or Primary School levels. Always interesting to see the theory behind children's play.
Book in Excellent condition. Good motivations to direct children's play and learning.
This is amazing resource. Highly reccomend!
