The Center for Early Childhood Education is pleased to announce the release of Investigating Nature, a video featuring activities conducted with toddlers and preschoolers at Eastern's Child and Family Development Resource Center (CFDRC). The video illustrates how teachers and children engaged in a variety of learning activities while investigating insects, worms, gardening, and other aspects of nature.
Investigating Nature is the third video in the Investigating... series. Each video in the series captures one topic of investigation explored through the CFDRC's Investigations curriculum. Videos include interviews with preschool and toddler teachers about how children engaged in literacy, math, science, art, and other activities through the three- or four-month investigation. The Center recently won a prestigious Telly Award for the second video in the series, Investigating Balls.
