  • Develop the scientist in your big kid by finding creative activities that may rouse his curiosity. Here are a few suggestions on how to teach science creatively to your big kid.

     

    Go On a Field Trip

    field tripYou don’t need to go too far to see science in action. You can see it anywhere. The outdoors is just a better way for your child to learn, as well as experience, the interaction of living and non-living things. Go on a field trip. As you stroll along, point to something that may strike an interest for you and your child.

     

    Make Experiments

    This may be the best way to win over your big kid. He’ll love learning science without knowing it. Some parents may think that they did not have the aptitude to make experiments themselves when they were younger. However, if you are one of these parents, consider helping your child to love learning new things by showing him your eagerness for learning as well. The Internet is a helpful tool to expand your knowledge about science experiments and how to explain them.

    If you can’t find a feasible experiment try cooking or baking. These are experiments that any child (or parent) would love. Don’t worry if you won’t be able to explain all the scientific principles behind it. Eventually, your child will be able to learn it in school. Your job is to expose him to these kinds of experiences.
