Children have a naturally inquisitive mind. Foster their curiosity with a walk through an autumn field or park to answer age-old “why” questions. As you walk with your child, you can encourage them to ask questions and then try to answer them using a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) exploration model.
First, decide what you want to focus on for your child’s learning. Then, start investigating and collecting data that you can do further research on such as why leaves change color. Finally, conduct an experiment from the research you collected. The ideas are endless, and you can let your little learner lead you towards what’s most interesting to them.
