Where in the World? Ways to Help Young Gifted Children Think Globally
Sandberg-Howe, Carol
Parenting for High Potential, v5 n3 p10-13 Spr 2016
What parent doesn't hope to give their children "the world," and at the earliest possible age start their journey in becoming responsible global citizens? Through play, children as young as 3 years old can assume active roles in learning important cultural-historical concepts. At home, parents can provide cultural information and resources, and later partner with early elementary teachers to provide cultural experiences in the classroom. This article offers global explorations and activities that parents and teachers can use to introduce gifted children to social studies and geography. A list of resources is included.
