Infants and young children are natural scientists. Guidance and structure expands their curiosity and activities into something more scientific to practice science. The goal of science curricula should be to help children understand the natural world through a process known as scientific inquiry. The Indiana Early Learning Foundations were designed to support teachers, parents, caregivers, and other professional personnel as they develop appropriate experiences for young children. During this workshop, we will be talking about all things science, as it relates to the Foundations: physical science, earth and space, life science, engineering, and scientific inquiry. Professionals will know how to use knowledge of science content, concepts and learning trajectories to design the curriculum and learning environments. Creating age-appropriate scientific learning experiences, while utilizing the Foundations, will be the focus of this workshop.
