Workshop Description
Two-year-old children are natural investigators. They explore their surroundings as they play with materials, wonder and ask why, and investigate their surroundings to learn more. This session will explore how using developmentally appropriate, hands-on explorations with twos helps children experience the excitement of discovery and develop their scientific thinking as they engage with the physical and natural worlds around them.
