School is out and it is time for summer vacation! During these summer months, you may find you have more time with your children. If your child struggles with science, summer vacation can be a great time for him to develop renewed curiosity and interest in the subject. Use this time to make science fun with your children. Science is all around us. Try out these outdoor science activities with your child today! 

Visit the Zoo

Take a family visit to the local zoo. While wandering around the park, engage your children by asking them about the different animals. You can ask them if they know what each animal eats  or if they think some of the animals are in the same biological family. 

Nature walk

Going for a nature walk is a great family activity that encourages healthy habits. Try identifying different trees and flowers with your child. Teach them to stay away from poison ivy or other dangerous plants. You can also spot birds with your children and identify them by their colors and calls. 

Try Geocaching 

Geocaching, the real-world outdoor scavenger hunt, is everywhere these days. There are many websites that offer maps on locally hidden geocache sites. Looking for a hidden geocache can sometimes be difficult so the whole family can get involved. This activity will get your children looking at things in a different perspective and is a great reason to be outside and check out new locations. You can use this activity to teach your kids about maps and orientation as well. 

Hopefully these science experiments will help your child realize the wonders of science. If you find your child struggling with math or science, we are here to help.
