The Cure For The Curious Child? Thought Provoking Science Pr

Children are often curious about the world around them. Simple concepts that you and I learned about long ago are new and foreign to children. Simple questions like what is glass made of? and why can you see through it? are just two examples of how everyday things can be such a puzzle for a developing mind.Lets all be honest; children who are constantly asking questions may be cute at first but we may get tired of the constant inquiries. Of course you want to help your children to learn and grow but you do not always have the time or the effort to explain all that your child wants to know. Nevertheless your child needs to know that you are willing to teach her and so you must find some kind a compromise.Such a compromise can be found in doing regular science projects together. You can show that you are dedicated to helping your child and cure the curiosity bug at the same time. Setting aside time to regularly work on science projects together is a great way to get hands on experience in answering childrens questions. The child benefits from the one on one time with mom and dad and can discover the answers that she is looking for through hands on experience. You will probably agree that telling a child how something works and showing a child how something works are very different (the later being the better option in most cases). It is possible for your child to develop their relationship with parents as well as their ability to be self sufficient when regular science projects become the norm.Set aside an amount of time that you think is appropriate to do science projects with your kids. It could be once a week, once a month, or whatever other interval you feel is appropriate. Encourage your child to write down their questions and ideas for projects and choose an activity from this list that you can experiment on together. Of course you do not need to do a science project for every question your child asks. You may choose to use a project to visually demonstrate a more complicated concept or you may not know the answer to a question and may want to research it out for yourself and perform your own personal experiments.Do not worry if you cannot come up with science projects on your own. Some of us simply do not have an affinity for creativity and ingenuity when it comes to creating a project. Fortunately there are resources available to help you in with all of your science project worries. You are sure to find a project that you and your children can enjoy doing together.Be aware that curiosity is contagious and that as you satisfy and encourage your childs curiosity you may be hit with a bit more curiosity of your own. Science can be fun whether you are in school or at home or whether you are an adult or a child.
