He may not leap tall buildings in a single bound or fly through the air with the greatest of ease, but he loves to unleash the power of investigation! This season "Sesame Street" introduces an all new segment- “Super Grover 2.0.” As he observes, questions, investigates, and reports, our hero literally stumbles across solutions to problems all across the planet.
Super Grover 2.0 Week
As an extension of the season’s curriculum focus on scientific investigation, this new series emphasizes a STEM curriculum (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) by modeling the processes of scientific inquiry.
Through these engaging and age-appropriate stories, preschoolers become active participants in solving problems through observation and investigation and are introduced to vocabulary, process skills, and concepts that are the foundations of STEM education.
Encourage your child to unleash his power of investigation, just like Super Grover! Together, experiment with wheels, pulleys, or ramps and learn even more about STEM concepts such as force, motion, and weight.
Also investigate new questions and problems based on your child’s observations. Ask your child questions such as, ““I wonder if…?” and “How do you know?”, while going through the steps of scientific inquiry, including observing, investigating, looking at evidence and reflecting on the big idea.
