I’m partnering with Bayer on today’s sponsored post as a part of their company-wide, award-winning initiative Making Science Make Sense® (MSMS).
Summer has been amazing with our two boys. Ezra is at a very interested and curious age. I constantly say to my husband “This is my favorite age” about both of our boys. There is something special in every age and stage of childhood from my experience.
But, I will say that Bodhi’s age (he’s four and in preschool) is amazing. The curiosity, growth, learning and development that happen are just mind-blowing for me as a parent of a little boy who was just my baby.
He loves to do things. From cooking and baking to exploring and creating, hands on activities are where it’s at for him.
Bodhi’s main interest is animals. He has loved them for years. Every birthday party has been about animals (or dinosaurs) and his preference is to read animal books and watch animal documentaries. When we traveled to Sri Lanka, his favorite part was definitely visiting the elephant orphanage and feeding the elephants. Every interest, mention and question he has is an opportunity for learning and growth.
Bayer’s Making Science Make Sense® (MSMS) initiative is amazing. It allows students to learn science by doing science through hands-on, inquiry-based experiences that involve observing, experimenting, hypothesizing, analyzing and testing. Bayer creates exciting, hands-on lessons for kids starting in elementary school to ignite their scientific curiosity at a young age. Studies show that this timing is the best chance to get students interested in the subject and to foster their science literacy skills.
As a mom of a preschooler, I wanted to share five ways to get kids excited about science during the summer. There are so many wonderful options all around us. Read More »
