Coconut Canyon and the entire curriculum supplement from Early Science with Nico & Nor® was rigorously researched and developed for home and preschool classroom use. It combines traditional hands-on activities with digital learning to promote young children’s engagement with science practices and concepts while also building their math skills and providing ways to participate in the engineering process.
