Focus Area #7, More Animals, has three Topics of study: *Squirrels and Rabbits *Frogs and Turtles *Bugs and Spiders
In Focus Area #7, More Animals, children are involved in activities that focus on living things: animals. They are involved at a foundational level in the science component of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). As in all of the Focus Areas, there are experiences that support all of the Domains of Child Development and Early Learning with a strong emphasis on the following Domains: Language Development LD) and Emergent Literacy (EL). Toddlers encounter animals in their yard, in their neighborhood, in creeks, lakes and ponds, and as they travel with their family. They may see rabbits, squirrels, frogs, turtles, bugs and spiders. Animals are a part of children’s environment. Through both planned and spontaneous experiences, caregivers can provide opportunities for toddlers to discover many things about these animals.
