This booklet is designed to help parents stir children's curiosity and steer that curiosity toward geographic questions and knowledge.

You might want to try doing some of them to help your child explore relationships, solve problems, and see math in a positive light. These activities use materials that are easy to find.

Helping Your Child Learn Science

Most parents say they do not--or cannot--help their children with science. But degrees in chemistry or physics aren't necessary to help our children. All we need is a willingness to observe and learn with them, and, above all, to make an effort and take the time to nurture their natural curiosity. This book provides examples of a few simple activities we can do with our children and it is an introduction to the wealth of material in many other books available in libraries and bookstores.

Teaching and learning are not mysteries that can only happen in school. They also happen when parents and children do simple things together.
