Learning at Home

Creating Science Collections Together

You Will Need:

An outdoor space, empty shoe boxes, tennis ball cans, other empty containers.

Directions:

Talk about collecting with your child and ask what kind of things your child would like to collect. If your child likes rocks, go to an area where there are many rocks. Go outside and start collecting. Have your child put each object into the container to add to his/her new collection. Display the collections in the home.

Tip:

Ask thought provoking questions that will encourage your child to seek out information. For example, questions like “where do you think that rock came from or how are these rocks alike?” Value the collection by displaying it artfully. Also use the internet to find pictures and research a topic.
