Summary "The new third edition of this book focuses on early childhood education from birth through age eight. Based on theories of child development, this resource depicts how to integrate scientific concepts with music and movement, language arts, social studies, and art. The book uses a problem-solving approach to discuss constructive concepts along with a balance of naturalistic, informal, and structured activities and experiences. The importance of literature and writing in science education is emphasized. Also, the book describes how to use dramatic play and thematic projects as vehicles for integration."--BOOK JACKET.
