Course Description

This course employs a project-based approach to the exploration of how young children develop skills and concepts in science. Students learn about scientific thinking, how to encourage science exploration, and how to support children's scientific inquiry from various perspectives, including Aboriginal, constructivist, reconceptualist, and the Reggio Emilia approach. Students will learn about design and creation of learning environments, projects and assessment tools that advance children's knowledge and skills development.


This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
