Gallenstein, N. (2005). Engaging young children in science and mathematics. Journal of Elementary Science Education, Volume 17.
A key element for children in understanding science and mathematics knowledge during early childhood is through active, creative, and intellectual engagement. According to Jerome Bruner, instruction should include a variety of developmentally appropriate techniques. These techniques include the representation of knowledge through actions, drawing and words. The process skills of observing, communicating and inferring are also crucial to the understanding and problem solving in science and mathematics. In addition, basic mathematics concepts such as comparing, sorting, counting, and graphing are crucial to the understanding and organization of data in science.
