The article, “Using the Scientific Method to Guide Learning: An Integrated Approach to Early Childhood Curriculum,” written by Hope K. Gerde, Rachel E. Schachter, and Barbara A. Wasik. The main purpose of the paper is to discuss the curriculum of early childhood development. Early childhood programs are so important for children that they enable them to compete well in their later grades. In this article, the writers emphasized the early childhood programs which are specifically designed to prepare children for scientific studies. Many studies and researchers showed that early childhood programs organize the children for science subjects in a brilliant, efficient and effective manner. The authors of the article discussed various important factors, especially the importance of science subjects. Young children need these programs to build their interest in science subjects. But many factors hinder that, including the lack of resources in the schools at the childhood level. High-quality science education can improve and develop students’ interests in science subjects.
The results of the study showed that the scientific methods could train young children about the methods and techniques of science subjects. The scientific techniques allow the children to learn about the science topics and tools to explore these issues. The questioning method and observation methods provide a way to explore the other subjects as well using these methods. The scientific techniques enhance and increase young children’s abilities to use their language and literacy skills appropriately and efficiently. The article provides in-depth detail about these techniques and how they can be used for the children in the classrooms by the teachers. The results of the study showed that the scientific method gives a unique way to teachers to explore and assess science subjects for their students.
