dc.description.abstract The purpose of this thesis is to enhance the importance of science in the early childhood classroom. The benefits of science for students and teachers are discussed along with the teacher's role in implementing science in the classroom. Suggestions are also given on how to integrate science with the other subjects that are most commonly taught in the early childhood classroom. Following these discussions is a detailed science unit plan on winter. This plan outlines activities that can be used to teach a science unit on winter while integrating the activities with the other subjects that will be taught during each day. Four appendices will follow that contain actual lesson plans and patterns from the winter science unit. Additionally, there is a list of other unit ideas, and a list of materials that are commonly used in science centers and lessons.
