"Location! Location! Location!"
Like buying a house, science planning is all about location as well!
However, what do you do when you don't have enough space to have a science interest center in your classroom?
You know that science is an activity that promotes all areas of children's development, yet you are limited in the space in our classroom or we have to share space which limits what we can leave in our classrooms each day.
Don't let that stop you! Where there's a will, there's a way!
Many of the teachers who have taken my Science in the Preschool Classroom workshop have proven this!
They have "wow'd" me in their assignments when describing how they have added a science component to their classrooms...even with limited "real estate"!
When you are writing up your lesson plans, do some science planning--even if you do NOT have a science center!
A dedicated area is not a necessity to provide science in the classroom. Science can take place throughout your classroom and throughout your curriculum!
When developing your lesson plans for the week, incorporate and carry out science in this way if you are limited for space:
The bottom line? DON'T avoid science planning due to lack of space!
