Science and Health in Childhood Education

Thematic teaching across the curriculum is modeled in this course in science, health and mathematics. The course will give undergraduate childhood students the opportunity to explore teaching methodologies in each of these content areas with primary focus on the role of science education in the elementary school curriculum. Science education requires teachers not only to know science subject matter but also to understand how to use scientific information to solve real-world problems and build an environment in their classrooms where inquiry, observation and tinkering can take place
