New Video Series on In-Depth Investigations with Children

bluemagnify.jpgThe Center for Early Childhood Education is pleased to unveil a new video series entitled Investigating.... Each video in the series captures one topic of investigation explored by children and teachers at Eastern's Child and Family Development Resource Center under the Investigations curriculum. The curriculum is centered around engaging projects--called "investigations"--on topics that are selected by children, teachers, and families. As children investigate a topic in learning centers, small collaborative groups, whole group activities, movement and music experiences, outdoor observation, or field trips, they acquire critical competencies identified in the Connecticut State Department of Education Curriculum and Assessment Framework and the standards of national professional organizations.

Each video in the Investigating... series include interviews with preschool and toddler teachers about how children engaged in literacy, math, science, art, and other activities through each three- or four-month investigation.

Two videos in the series are now available:

  • Investigating...Going Green
  • Investigating...Balls

A third video will be released this winter.
