Creating Integrated, Inquiry Science Lessons Based on Early Childhood Science Activities
by Chavez, Gabriela, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 69; 10262859
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop early childhood science lesson plans from already existing Physical Science activities from A Head Start on Science: Encouraging a Sense of Wonder. The 5E Instructional Model, the Learning Cycle, and other Inquiry-Based teaching strategies were used as a guide for the development of two Physical Science lesson plans. The revised lesson plans were evaluated by experts in early childhood education and science education. The feedback provided from each early childhood expert were carefully analyzed. The feedback provided guidance on how to make the appropriate modifications on the Physical Science lesson plans in order for them to become a useful learning tool.
