Approaches to Inquiry:
Creating quality hands-on science experiences in the Pre-K classroom – 3 hours

This participatory session explores current best practices for hands-on early childhood classroom science. Join us as we examine the use of inquiry and the scientific method through exciting, hands-on science experiences, investigating the value of open-ended questioning for Pre-K scientific exploration.
