Unit 7 discussion STEM Sprouts This week you learned about technology and young

Unit 7 discussion STEM Sprouts This week you learned about technology and young children from multiple sources. STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) should be occurring in young children's daily life experiences. The Boston Children's Museum provides its “STEM Sprouts” Training Guide which explains STEM learning guidelines and demonstrates intentional teaching. The guide is filled with many, engaging and exciting activities that bring STEM to life for children, families and teachers. As preparation for our discussion forum: On your own, explore the STEM Sprouts Teaching Guide to gain a working knowledge of the four integrated fields of study. Identify one activity appropriate for a young child between the ages of 3 and 8 years old. Post the following in your discussion thread: The title of the activity and specific field (i.e., Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) What does the activity teach you about STEM and its application in early childhood education? Discuss with classmates: Are the activities developmentally appropriate for young children? Why or why not?
