The Center for Early Childhood Education (CECE) has announced the release of "Investigating Trees," a new video highlighting the work of teachers at the Child and Family Development Resource Center (CFDRC). Investigating Trees explores how teachers engaged toddlers and preschoolers in a variety of learning activities while studying trees and the animals that live in them. The video features teachers Patty Gardner, Amy Tyler and Amie Theriault, as well as CFDRC Director Niloufar Rezai.
Investigating Trees is the fourth in the "Investigating" video series. Each video in the series captures one topic of investigation in the CFDRC, and illustrates how teachers involved children in literacy, math, science, art and other activities through the three to four months of investigation.
Media production specialist Ken Measimer directed Investigating Trees. Communication student Sean Leser served as editor and videographer; Communication students Amy Dillon and Sarah Pierce served as production assistants.
