Fun for Families & Little Ones – STEM activities

April 21, 2016

During the early years when children begin to develop language and social skills, they’re also learning about early science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through play and everyday interactions.  STEM learning is a critical part of child development and can happen anytime, anywhere. The real-life skills that children learn when exploring STEM help make them better problem-solvers and thinkers. IDEA Part C includes early numeracy and early literacy as important skills for infants and toddlers.

Let’s Talk, Read and Sing about STEM” tip sheet for Parents offers fun ways to add a daily dose of STEM learning into families’ regular activities in English or Spanish.
