Windows describes the experience of many children all over the world, whose spaces have been restricted and experiences limited during the pandemic. The children in the book observe clouds and people from their windows and prove that their imagination and creativity cannot be confined.
You can use this book to give the children an opportunity to talk about their experiences and feelings during lockdowns and tight regulations. How did they feel? How did they adapt? Who do they miss?
What can you see from your window? What do the clouds look like? What weather do they bring? Can you see the sun in the mornings? What sounds do you hear?
All you need to spot STEM in the everyday is a window and observation skills.
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
