### Abstract:

"How do math and science relate to music, social studies, arts, and language arts for young children? This book will demonstrate how math and science integrate with each other and with other academic areas for children from birth through age eight." "This unique book provides the knowledge and skills needed to effectively teach math and science to young children. Emphasis is placed on the use of both informal and structured activities to help young children develop an understanding of basic concepts."--Jacket.
