ELCC 200 - Program Planning - Science Areas with Young Children
This course focuses on the nature and development of science, mathematics and social studies in the lives of young children in a Northern context. Students use experiments to assist in the conceptual understanding of these areas. Though traditionally approached as separate disciplines, the three areas are presented within a framework of integrated learning. Students develop, carry out, and evaluate relevant experiences that will meet the needs of children. Finally, the course investigates the nature and methods of long-term and short-term planning.
