Teal Room Tree Rubbing 230x173.jpgThe Center for Early Childhood Education is pleased to announce the release of Investigating Trees, 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 closely studying trees and the animals that live in them.

Investigating Trees is the fourth 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 won a prestigious Telly Award in the spring for the second video in the series, Investigating Balls.
