Science and Nature
Young children are curious about the world around them. As soon as they begin to talk, they ask "why" and "what" questions about things they see. But children start to lose this curiosity as they get older. Research finds that learning how to ask questions about the world helps keep curiosity growing.
Why is curiosity important? Studies show successful adults tend to be curious. They start new businesses, invent things, and solve problems.
Science activities help spark young children's curiosity. And nature is a perfect place to explore and ask questions. Use the activities here to bring some science into your home.
