SUPPORTING PRESCHOOL SCIENCE LEARNING THROUGH MUSIC
As all educators know, young children are natural scientists! Driven by their innate curiosity, they explore, experiment, and ask questions as they learn about the world around them. In this way, scientific inquiry and understanding begin in early childhood. Providing children with active and participatory music experiences can be an enjoyable way to support the development of scientific thinking and understanding in fun and developmentally appropriate ways.
