Big Science for Little Hands is a resource designed specifically for educators and caregivers of children aged 2 to 5 years. There are 18 themes of hands-on activities that promote scientific literacy, STEM and the inquiry-based approach to learning.
This workshop provides an opportunity for you to try out a variety of hands-on science (think messy and fun!) activities from three of our themes; Rockin’ Rocks, Tremendous Trees, and Salt & Fresh water. Investigate the properties of salt and fresh water, how the different parts of a tree connect to the bigger picture and make your own fossil!
We will spend time teasing out the science concepts of each activity, discuss ways to encourage scientific literacy in young children and consider how adults can aid children’s exploration of science.
Suitable for child care providers of children 205 years of age
