Please use the activities and lessons plans in this section as a guide to introduce subjects in a positive way and bring hands-on, confidence building experiments to children.
Introducing subjects as “play” is an effective and developmentally appropriate way to foster lifelong appre- ciation and confidence in learning.
My hope is that students come away from an activity feeling that they like the subject, they are capable of it and they are good at it. Early childhood interest and confidence leads to success and fulfillment in later years..
Each activity/lesson plan includes materials, how to do it with a large group, the lesson behind it, a preschool version and vocabulary. Most of the materials you will use can be purchased easily and inexpensively at grocery and hardware stores. Every activity was developed with budget efficiency in mind. The concepts covered in most activities are tied to Pre-K-5 learning standards.
