Early Literacy Tip—March 2019

STEAM Learning

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that integrates the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics in order to stimulate critical thinking skills.  For young children, focus on STEAM through exploration, play, and building curiosity about the natural world and the way things work. STEAM learning can happen anytime, anywhere!

Science Learning Ideas:

Encourage children to use all their senses and to ask questions.

Conduct fun investigations and make predictions like will something sink or float or will something freeze or melt.
