the STEAM process –
- Investigate: Let them look at the materials they are using. Let them touch them, feel them, hold them, talk about what each is made of and ask questions about the materials. Let them explore and see them.
- Discover: Talk about the colors, shapes, materials you are using – discover through learning.
- Connect: Keep it simple! Connect colors or shapes to their world. Ask if they can name other items they know of with similar shapes or colors. Ask them if they have ever seen a tower, what it looked like, if it went up or down, skinny or large. Get them to think and discuss.
- Create: Direct them and let them create/make on their own. Remember they won’t do it perfect and this is where they truly learn and connect a lot in their minds.
- Reflect: Ask what they learned through the STEAM activity for preschoolers. Ask what worked and what didn’t. Again get them to talk and think about their project.
