Field-tested across the country, this comprehensive curriculum expands and extends the role science has traditionally played in the early childhood classroom. The first in a new series, Discovering Nature with Young Children explores the wide-ranging elements that make up the natural world around us. The curriculum replaces simple fact-feeding practices with the development of long-term scientific reasoning, including literacy skills and numeracy skills, such as hypothesis, inference, prediction, and estimation.

Ingrid Chalufour has designed and conducted training programs for staff in child care, Head Start, public schools, and social service agencies for more than 35 years. Karen Worth is a graduate-level instructor in the early childhood education department at Wheelock College.
