Deliciously beautiful eh? A hand picked set of 27 tumbled stones and crystals. Each and every stone was chosen by hand. These beautiful treasures are perfect for many uses - science, sorting and classifying. They can also be used to create beautiful mandalas or in transient art. In addition to the 27 crystals, you will receive a set of 6 sari treasure bags gathered in the shade of a rainbow, with each set carefully selected by hand. The full collection, is kept in a calico drawstring bag.

The National winner of the 2018 #littlescientists early #stem award is #monashvalearlylearningcentre 🎉🎊🏆💥 Family, friends and the local community came together to celebrate this outstanding achievement. Congratulations!! #stemearlychildhood #stemisfun #earlychildhoodeducation

Combining measurement and mathematics with fine motor work!
The child uses the syringe to measure 5ml increments of liquid into the 3-dimensional vessels (cube, cylinder and so on). The child records how many repetitions they need to fill the vessel, then uses a calculator to multiply the number of repetitions times 5 to find the volume of the vessel.
We used our View-Thru Geometric Solids from our online store but it could be achieved with jars or containers from home.
The fellow in these photos was 4 at the time of the task, I'd recommend the full sequence for ages 4 plus, but younger children can still use the syringe to observe and experiment with measuring volume (but they might not record and calculate).

"We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry."
Dr Maria Montessori

I love this quote and the way that it invokes the magic, creative leaps and artistry that are inherent in the process of experimentation, inquiry and discovery!
We've been talking STEM a lot within our teaching team lately. There are so many ways to introduce science, and its magic, to young children. Over the next few weeks we will share some of our favourite 'Simple STEM' experiences - tasks that are not overly complicated (and don't require elaborate materials or an adult with particular expertise) but that inspire children to get hands-on with the wonderful worlds of science, technology, engineering and maths!

Students from STEAMtastic Saturdays learned about attraction and repulsion. In addition, students incorporated writing by creating a story from their magnet activity! @seekinc #steamtasticsaturday #seekfoundation #science #writing #equaleducation #stemearlychildhood #stemeducationforkids
