Item #: 352
# of Pages:112
If you think the words young children and physics don’t belong together, think again. Based on the theories of Piaget and the work of DeVries and Sales, this book successfully makes the case for building a constructivist approach to physical science learning in the early childhood classroom.

"All early childhood teachers should read this excellent book. In clear and respectful language, using theory, vignettes, and photographs, the authors both describe how children construct knowledge of the physical world and explain and illustrate what it means to be a constructivist teacher. Their Ten Principles of Teaching should be in the hands of every early childhood teacher."
— Karen Worth, coauthor of the Young Scientist series
