Early Childhood Teachers Introduced to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) Practices and Content

By on February 6, 2015 in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education, Teacher Training Workshops

Exceptional Education Early Childhood educators were introduced to science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) practices and content image early childhood STEM teacher trainingduring a STEAM teacher training workshop conducted by Dr. Diana Wehrell-Grabowski. Early childhood teachers were actively engaged in exploring STEAM practices via conducting inquiry-based investigations to explore a variety of STEAM content including: structure and function, pattern and shapes, mathematics, incorporating STEM practices in the block center, materials science, journaling, force, motion, and energy concepts. Additionally, Dr. Diana Wehrell-Grabowski introduced teachers to children’s literature with STEAM content, titles such as Iggy Peck the Architect, Three Little Pigs: An Architectural Tale, and many more were read during the related hands-on investigation. Teachers also maintained reflective journals throughout the full-day STEAM training. As always it was a great group of teachers, they left motivated and ready to implement and incorporate STEAM practices and content within their early childhood classrooms.
