Children (3 - 5 years)
Your child is probably beginning to notice that he is growing and changing. This makes it a good time to point out some living things in his environment that are growing and changing, too.
Plants and other living things are growing all around.
- Explore seeds and plants with your child. Help him begin to become aware of plants as living things that have basic needs.
- Explore different types of plants. Help him begin to understand that there are many different types of plants that live in different environments.
Have fun exploring together the many flowering plants, trees, bushes, and other living things that live and grow right in your own community.
