This unit assists students to develop knowledge and skills in the teaching of science at the early childhood level. It provides students with the ability to help young children gain a beginning understanding of the world around them, a beginning understanding of the physical and biological aspects of the world and the universe, and a beginning awareness of the ever-changing technological environment in which we live. An emphasis is upon play as a vehicle for learning and family involvement in an inclusive and supportive learning environment for young children.
