Product description

Review

Developing Early Science Skills Outdoors is an accessibly written, attractively designed book providing a balance between practical activities, theory, curriculum and practitioner priorities such as observations, planning and recording learning. I particularly like the fact that methods of science enquiry have been used to provide structure throughout the book, signposting to practitioners the different dimensions of scientific enquiry in a helpful and accessible way. The excellent pictures help clarify and bring the text to life as well as informing and inspiring practitioners. I feel that the accessibility of this book is significantly enhanced by the layout and mix of activities and more managerial issues. There is also a good balance between adult-led and adult-initiated activities. The inclusion of key vocabulary as part of the practical activities supports and empowers practitioners in their interactions with children. I like the inclusion of extension ideas which help strengthen and consolidate learning of concepts and a help to avoid a focus on disparate activities. The section on Continuous Outdoor provision provides a wealth of great low or no cost ideas which will I m sure be useful for settings. For all the above reasons Developing Early Science Skills Outdoors provides a great introduction to the world of science and the vital role of inspiring the adults that work with children to ensure that these natural scientists are able to explore, flourish and grow. --Sue Gascoyne, Author and Early Education Trainer
