One of the strongest themes in the National Science Education Standards (NSES) (National Research Council 1996) and Benchmarks for Science Literacy (Benchmarks) (American Association for the Advancement of Science 1993) was that all children can learn science andthat they should have the opportunity to become scientifically literate.In order for this learning to happen, the effort to introduce children to the essential experiences of science inquiry and explorations must begin at an early age.A national consensus evolved around what constitutes effective science teaching and learning for young children.More than ever before, educators agreed that preschool level and primary level science is an active enterprise. The Constructivism is a theory evolved out of thecombination of Philosophy, Psychology, and Science is used as a yard stick to verify the science process skills. The results arrived by all the methodology and statistical procedures showed the impact of CBLS in a positive manner and the variables have noinfluence in the acquisition of process skills.
