About the Author
While the book is aimed at 3 to 6 year-olds, my 7 and 10 year-old children eagerly picked up the book and quickly made a list of activities they want to do together! This book can easily be modified by the educator or parent to make it a valuable learning tool for early learning and elementary aged children.
After reviewing the activities and lessons in Simple STEAM, I immediately incorporated into my professional library of resources and will be using it for activities to keep my children active and learning over the summer break. Its innovative and entertaining ideas are sure to make learning fun!-- (03/26/2018)
As a mother, teacher, and writer/illustrator of children's books, I have a good idea of what appeals to children. They are innately curious and employ all of their five senses to learn about the world around them. Simple STEAM:50+ Science Technology Engineering Art Math Activities for Ages 3 to 6 by Marnie Forestieri and Debby Mitchell encourages them to do just that. The 50+ activities included in this book will inspire young children with hands-on experiments they can perform at home with their parents/ caregivers. The adult is considered a co-learner and collaborator.
Together they will explore the pillars of 21st Century education: science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Critical thinking skills, collaboration and observation are all important foundations for successful learners and future leaders. The activities are fun, well-planned, and easy to follow. The adults will be relieved to find that they need not be a scientist or mathematician to be able to guide their youngster through the experiments, in fact they may even learn something along with their child! Asking questions and actively engaging the child while working alongside deepens the level of understanding. This experiential learning allows mistakes to happen which resonates with children and provides valuable opportunities to explore, observe, hypothesize, and question. -- (04/20/2018)
