Did you know your child is a natural scientist even from the earliest years of life?
One of the most important areas of learning in today’s world — and a key to later success in work and life — is science. Children are born curious and eager to learn, and their love of science can be ignited long before they enter formal schooling. This week Marty Watson, director of the innovative Dodge Nature Preschool in West St. Paul, MN, joins Marti & Erin for a thoughtful discussion of ways to bring out the scents in your child through play and exploration in nature — fun and enriching activities for all four seasons of the year!
In what ways have you noticed your child learning through outdoor play and exploration? How do you (or how could you) use those experiences to expand your child’s thinking, communication, and knowledge of science? Share your thoughts in our REPLY space below!
