Hands-On STEAM Explorations for Young Learners: Problem-Based Investigations for Preschool to Second Grade uses popular children’s nursery rhymes to explore STEAM concepts through minds-on, hands-on investigations. Children ages 4–8 and their teachers will love this twist on familiar old nursery rhymes. Children will enjoy problem solving and tinkering as they discover and explore. Baa, Baa, Black Sheep insists that she hides more colors in the drawn lines of her black wool. Test to find out if it is possible for black to be more than one color. How might you make Old King Cole’s fiddle using cardboard boxes and rubber bands? Teachers will appreciate the easy-to-follow layout, connections to advanced learning, and easy-to-access materials in each investigation. Innovation, wonder, and fun are at the heart of each of these explorations.

Rich and Engaging STEAM Explorations
As a Gifted Coordinator and STEAM educator, I am thrilled with the depth and complexity of the lessons included in this book! Allison Bemiss truly has a gift for creating thoughtful and creative STEAM explorations guaranteed to engage and delight young learners. She includes easy-to-understand background information on the scientific principles explored in each lesson to help the teacher/parent feel confident introducing and explaining concepts to students, as well as detailed, step-by-step procedures and discussion prompts. These lessons are not designed to be teacher demonstrations (where the adult does the experiment and the students watch and discuss) but truly hands-on labs designed to stimulate children to wonder, question, experiment, collect data and reason. Hands-On STEAM Explorations for Young Learners deftly melds literacy, math, and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into rich, open-ended lessons that are inclusive for all young students.
