Innovate for Tots
Little learners get a head full of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) with these interdisciplinary and hands-on activities. Designed for curious preschoolers, these playful activities focus on themed materials and then expand outward with storytelling, project-based learning, science, discovery, artifact viewing and classroom exploration.
Many kinds of metals are found deep in the ground around us. Nuts and bolts, cans, and pots and pans are just a few items made of metal that we use every day. Metal can be used in many ways for work and for play.
Plastic is a man-made material that can be molded to make thousands of everyday items. Bottles, toys and even packing materials are all made of plastic. Plastic can be used in so many ways that we would have a difficult time living without it.
It's all around us, a basic building block of our world. We write on it. We read from it. We play with it. We use it every day. Let's explore how strong it is, how to build with it and even how to take flight with it.
Explore natural materials that we grow, gather and use to make and decorate useful objects. Materials that come from fields, forests, birds and insects have always provided people with materials we can use to help us work and play.
