Join us to investigate how to support young children's developing STEM skills using all kinds of boxes! Participants will explore how children's learning is grounded in hands-on experiences and gain understanding of how to engage children's curiosity through the use of inquiry science methods. Discussion of what STEM means in early childhood and the Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Standards will be included. Much of the session will be devoted to playing with boxes and investigating how creative project-based experiences align with Massachusetts standards and guidelines, as well as Teaching Strategies GOLD Objectives for Development and Learning. Adaptations for mixed ages and different learning styles will also be discussed. Participants will receive a list of resources and useful handouts.
