Help Your Child Learn to Discover with our June ParentTip!

Every time your child observes something or tries to question or understand what she sees, she is using scientific thinking.  It's not just about facts.  It's about discovering things, knowing how to ask questions and find answers.  Scientific thinking is one of the skills your child will need to in order to be ready for school.  The ordinary things you do with your child every day can help build these abilities.  Give your child a paper bag.  Have a scavenger hunt.  Say, for example, "Let's find something green" or "Let's find something soft."  Learn more about our June ParentTip Your Child is Learning to Discover!
