STEM Activities to Engage Curious Young Minds
Science , technology, engineering and math activities connected to my book Have Courage & Be Kind
SEE THAT THE IMAGINATION OF NATURE IS FAR, FAR, GREATER THAN THE IMAGINATION OF MAN.
Children are curious beings and natural scientists. They use their senses intuitively to make discoveries about the world around them. Home, outdoor and school settings are wonderful places for children to experiment with materials, toys and found objects to discover the scientific principles of our natural world.
