Science Activities A to Z gives teachers and parents a detailed lesson plan format of process-oriented science activities for young children ages one and up.
The easy-to-understand, hands-on activities promote the development of problem solving and the ability to make predictions. Each section helps teachers and parents in finding science activities for a theme-based curriculum, to incorporate a letter of the week, or to provide a spur-of-the-moment filler idea.
Many activity choices are given for each targeted alphabet letter. The "Helpful Hints" section shares techniques for carrying out the activities-all based on the authors many years experience working with young children.
