Early Childhood Education

Children from the very beginning should be encouraged and persuaded to make use of their heads and hands. Read this book and try making the toys on your own. Going through this book, if you don't understand something, think it over, apply your own mind and try something on your own and by yourself. If what you make does not quite look like the toy shown in the book, but but works, the same way or differently, this is even better.

This book is a collation of some interesting activities - geometry by paper folding, toys, tangrams, pumps, caps, experiments, and simple science models. These activities are interspersed with inspiring stories on education, peace, environment and mathematics. More than one thousand line drawings illustrate the text. This book follows no strict order or hierarchy. It is not meant for any specific age group, nor does it supplement or complement textbooks. This book shows possibilities of doing science with simple things.

This book is a collation of several ideas and activities around making toys from trash and learn so many concepts of Science and Technology.

This booklet lists a few innovative experiments for learning science. Many of them I learnt from interesting children, people and books. The English title of this book LITTLE SCIENCE has been taken from the magazine SCIENCE AGE where most of these articles first appeared.

This book is full of DIY pumps you can make from trash or everyday materials...

Every little child does it
Making things from odds and bit
The whole world is a garbage pit
Collect some junk and make a kit.

You'll never be at a loss
Make do what you come across
Con - rod, piston, suction port
All these parts you don't import.

An attempt has been made in the book to show how some of modern junk (like tetra packs) can be recycled into joyous toys.

This booklet attempts to give a glimpse of some of the experiments and toys designed as part of the Hoshangabad Science Teaching Programme. Intensive use is made of things which are commonly available and with which the children are familiar. Many of the experiments were designed, often with the help of village children and teachers, in response to the dismal poverty existing in most village school.

Sting Games provides step-by-step instructions with illustrations for making diverse and interesting string figures. The fun-filled figures created by using strings of all sorts not only augment memory and imagination of young children but also enrich their hand-eye coordination.

Ten Little Fingers is a collation of innovative toys and science activities which the author has tried and tested in more than one thousand schools over the past twenty years. With detailed illustrations, each activity is clearly depicted. Children do not need fancy laboratories and expensive equipment for doing science activities. There is much, which can be done using throwaway things found at home. Only when children use ordinary things do they realise the relevance of science in everyday life.
