Science activities may be neglected in early childhood programs because we don't trust our own knowledge. More Than Magnets takes the uncertainty out of teaching science with more than 100 activities that engage children in interactive science opportunities. Prepares teachers and caregivers to ask and answer questions through the Scientific Information, What to Look For, and Suggested Sequence sections.
