From Summer Activities for Children, Part 4:
Play “What Do You Wonder About?” Pick a state or country to learn about. Ask your child, “What Do You Wonder about Alaska (or any other state or country he might be interested in)?” You’ll need your computer or some books to find answers to his questions. Here is how you play.
- You each take turns asking the question, “What do you wondered about …?”
- After each question, the person being asked the question makes a guess about the answer and the other person agrees or disagrees.
- Then, look up the answer together in a book or on the computer.
- If the question is too complicated to easily find an answer, break it down into parts and try to find an answer to just part of the question. Over time, keep looking for more information to add to the answer until your child is satisfied with the answer. Remember, young children like simple responses, so don’t dig more deeply than your child seems to need.
