Como Ayudar a sus Hijos a Aprender Ciencia (Helping Your Child Learn Science).
Paulu, Nancy; Martin, Margery
Because most parents say they do not or cannot help their children with science, this booklet was designed to help them do so, easily and with pleasure for both parent and child. The introduction presents information on why and how parents should help their children and provides a general orientation to the ideas and activities offered in the booklet, with emphasis on the importance of encouraging and stimulating children's natural curiosity and eagerness to learn. The other chapters are: "The Basics,""Important Things to Learn,""Activities at Home," and "Activities in the Community." Activities that can be performed at home by a child with an adult have names like The Big Picture, Attack of the Straws, Soap Power, Bubbles, Bugs, It Floats, Slime, Celery Stalks at Midnight, Sticky Things, Hair Raising Results, Moldy Oldies, Plants, Crystals, Cake, and Television. Activities that can be enjoyed in the community include visiting zoos, museums, planetariums, aquariums and farms, and meeting and talking to people who use science in a variety of interesting occupations.
