Summary

The new edition of this popular book again gathers all of the elements necessary to help prospective teachers learn to inspire children to care about their world and how it works, enjoy investigating it, and remember with pride what their investigations uncover. These authors clearly demonstrate that to be effective, science teaching must engage children not just physically, intellectually, and socially; but, emotionally, as well. They show how providing achievable goals and appropriate guidance sparks children's natural interest in what things do, how things work, and why things happen the way they do. The book's multi-model approach works with a variety of learning styles. It connects science activities with the rest of the early childhood curriculum--math, literature, music, art, etc.--and places science in the context of today's children's lives within the family and the community. Increased coverage of neuroscience expands discussion of the complex interactions between emotions, memory, and thought processes.
