Playtime is Science

Playtime is Science
A program of science activities for children in the early childhood years and their parents is offered. The three different formats of the Playtime Is Science program are adaptable to a variety of settings and schedules. The Parent/Child Activity Program includes one parents-only session in which participants learn that routine chores involve physical science concepts they can share with their children. During the remaining four sessions, children are given 45 minutes to learn activities. Parents act as facilitators in the activities. In the second version of the program, Parents as Teachers, parents work not only with their own children, but also with their children's classmates. The third version, Super Science Saturday, gives parents a chance to use the program on weekends. The five core activities of the program involve physical science experiences with materials commonly found in the home. Activities include making and using sieves, creating a "mystery bottle," making and tossing bean bags, building with "wonderful junk," and discovering how machines work. Sections of the guide provide directions, a program overview, a resource list of appropriate picture and activity books, and step-by-step activity sheets. (RH)

What Will Happen If--

release date: Jan 01, 1985
What Will Happen If--
Based on the premise that exposure to science and technology is important in early childhood curricula, this guide was developed to help teachers incorporate mathematics, sciences, and technology-related activities into existing programs. Activities contained in this guide focus on concepts in the physical sciences and in the development of visual-spatial and problem-solving skills. The guide has built into each activity ways to ensure that all children participate equally regardless of sex, race, or disability. Major sections include: (1) introduction (focusing on equity issues, early childhood environment, and the rationale for the guide); (2) using the scientific method with young children (explaining the format of the guide, nature of the scientific method, and the role of the teacher); (3) preliminary activity (creating a collage on what scientists do); (4) water and sand (exploring the concept of flow); (5) blocks (explaining momentum with ramps and balls); (6) bottles and liquids (concentrating on solubility, density, and viscosity); (7) machines (consisting of technologically oriented activities); and (8) resources (identifying math and science materials for children, teachers, and parents).
