Marvelous Explorations Through Science and Stories: MESS is a science-centered early childhood curriculum enhancement. The goal of MESS is to foster children’s language development, literacy development, problem solving, curiosity and motivation, and general knowledge through science experiences. MESS includes 10 month-long units. Each includes field-tested science experiences, suggestions for ways to integrate each topic across the curriculum, lists of recommended books and science materials, and ideas for involving families in children’s learning at home and in other settings.
MESS was developed by the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida in partnership with local Head Start programs and public libraries. Funded by the Administration for Children & Families, as a Head Start Innovation and Improvement Project in 2004, the guides and supporting materials are available as a free resource on the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center of ECLKC (link).
