GLENVILLE, WV—Members of Glenville State College’s Early Education Student Group recently gave a presentation at the 2015 Celebrating Connections Conference held at the Civic Center in Charleston, West Virginia.
The presentation, Enhancing Young Children’s Curiosity Through Exploration and Discovery Activities, allowed the students to share a variety of hands-on learning activities to enhance cognitive development in elementary-age children by building curiosity through exploration and discovery.
“Our presentation at Celebrating Connections was an amazing experience. It was great to be able to share information with veteran teachers and to receive feedback and suggestions. I am thankful that I was able to be a part of this experience and would recommend it to all future and current educators,” said GSC Elementary Education K-6, Early Education PreK-K, and Math 5-9 major Sarah Lane.
The GSC students also shared ideas for connecting children’s literature to activities in order to encourage and build curiosity, both in the classroom and at home.
The conference was presented in part by West Virginia Early Childhood Training Connections and Resources, a statewide program designed to provide professional development opportunities for early care and education communities.
