Young children are intuitive scientists, exploring their world through observation, questioning and investigations. Why is then that so many of us as adults feel that we lack scientific knowledge and how does this subconsciously affect the provision, experiences and opportunities we provide for young children who are starting their scientific journey? Most of our everyday actions at home, pre-school and outside have a scientific basis. This easily accessible book will help you to realise the wonderful science happening in our settings all day and every day through the familiar resources and experiences we offer to children as part of life in an Early Years Setting. It introduces the simplest form of the principles and big ideas of science and provides a starting point for encouraging children to have an interest and experiential understanding of basic science and engineering. Relying only on simple equipment such as beakers, fridge magnets, torches cardboard tubes and paper, each chapter includes: A summary of the 'big ideas' of the science presented in the chapter Activities that will introduce children to or develop their experiences of an aspect of science A list of relevant vocabulary Suggested questions to ask children to help their understanding Providing a wealth of exciting, meaningful ways to promote scientific learning, this highly practical book will help you to build on children's natural curiosity about the world and develop their understanding through your everyday provision.
