Keep science hands on...

Early learners need to follow the three stages of hands on learning in all subjects, not only math. These stages are are often called the concrete, the representational or connecting and the abstract (this stage is not too important for kindergarten students).

An example of the stages of hands on learning in a science lesson would be:

  • concrete - students have plenty of time to play with and examine a set of rocks and then sort them into 2 groups, a group of one colored rocks and a group with more than one color
  • representational or connecting - students sort real rocks into two groups using the same criteria as above, and then draw their observations into a science journal
  • abstract - students have a worksheet with pictures of rocks and sort by criteria (no real rocks used)
