The Creative Curriculum Study Starters: Wheels (#8)
This valuable new science and social studies resource is a series of step-by-step guides on developing studies about real-life topics that spark children's curiosity. Study Starters begin with topics that children want to explore and help you identify children's questions, learn background information and vocabulary, organize and plan the environment, facilitate investigations, incorporate content skills and knowledge, and involve families.
As children investigate wheels, they will explore physical science concepts about the characteristics and properties of wheels, how wheels move, the construction of wheels, and friction. They will learn about how people live, work, and travel, and how wheels have changed over time.
Each Study Starter is available individually, or you may purchase the complete set to receive a free teacher's guide and full-color binder to store the Study Starters and your notes. This is designed for preschool and kindergarten programs.
