Scientific Literacy in the Early Years

Activity 3 - Another View - Project 2061

Project 2061 puts considerable stress on "Habits of Mind."

"Highest priority should be given to encouraging the curiosity about the world that children bring to school. Natural phenomena easily capture the attention of these youngsters, but they should be encouraged to wonder about mathematical and technological phenomena as well.."

Spend 5-10 minutes browsing "Habits of Mind"

Make a list of any key ideas you wish to add to your thoughts about "scientific literacy."

Wait for the seminar leader to suggest moving to the next module.
