Abstract

Early childhood education in schools must be able to stimulate the development of communication skills as one of the most important aspects of development. Based on the results of preliminary observations, it was identified that the learning process in early childhood education is still dominated by the individual and paper-based strategy so that the development of children’s communication is low. To optimize children’s communication skills, Science Technology Engineering and Math-Project Based Learning (STEAM-PBL) is applied which in its stages provides more opportunities for children to express ideas verbally. STEAM-PBL was carried out in three series with a total of 8 meetings involving 14 children aged 4-5 years and observed using an observation sheet containing a number of indicators related to communication skills. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics supported by narrative explanations. The results showed that children’s communication skills developed very well until the end of learning.
