What could it be??
What could it be? What is it made of? What are they used for? What do they look like?
This was a STEM investigation conducted last week at Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach to get the children thinking critically as they analysed the objects to try to make links to real life. In so doing, they expanded their knowledge of natural materials. They took part in conversations with their peers and solved the problem by thinking independently and by making decisions about what turned out to be .... coconut scorers.
STEM stands for the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
This project and other similar projects are conducted regularly by our amazing Educators to help the children think outside the square, gain confidence, and encourage the children to share their ideas and thoughts with their group in order to identify what they are looking at.
Peer teaching plays a major role in these stem tasks and it is quite amazing to watch their confidence grow and to watch these little minds develop as the year progresses.
Children love to learn.
