Learning at Home

Creating Science Collections

You Will Need:

An outdoor space, empty shoe boxes, tennis ball cans, other empty containers

Directions:

Talk about collecting things with your child and ask what type of collection she would like to start. If she likes rocks, go to an area where there are many rocks, like a park or the beach, and start collecting. Have her put each object into a container to add to her new collection. Display the collections in your home.

Tip:

Ask thought provoking questions like, “Where do you think that rock came from?” and “How are these rocks alike?” Displaying the collection artfully will show your child that you value the collection. Also, consider using the internet to find pictures and research topics, like finding more information about rocks, for example.
