They are beginning to learn about the changes happening each day, month, and season. They are starting to ask questions about the environment and world beyond. They are anxious to explore the creatures in their own backyard.Math and Science Investigations supports young childrens natural curiosity and encourages them to explore what happens around them. Hands-on investigations help children learn the skills, concepts, and standards of mathematics, science, language, and literacy--all at the same time--using some of their favorite books.Each chapter includes a general introduction to the theme- ideas to start you thinking about math, science, language, and literacy- vocabulary related to the topic- and childrens book suggestions.Sally Anderson is the founder and executive director of the Vermont Center for the Book, an affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
