STEAM Concepts for Infants and Toddlers
Nichole A. Baumgart and Linda Ruth Kroll
STEAM’s goal is to support the native creativity and innovation that all children possess. Infants and toddlers have a naturally curious mindset. Yet, there is little literature for educators to sufficiently learn more about how to use STEAM concepts in their practice with infants and toddlers. This book uses illustrated vignettes to narrate stories of infant and toddler STEAM concept explorations and bring out new possibilities for caregivers to uncover within their own environments. STEAM Concepts for Infants and Toddlers presents an inquiry stance for caregivers to consider their role and values that they hold in connection to STEAM concepts. People have different views around how young children should be exposed to STEAM concepts and why. This book gives a space for you to reflect upon their own experiences and views before engaging with young children’s learning around STEAM concepts, allowing you to identify areas that are more or less familiar with. This self-reflection will help you take a risk and try something new.
