Naturalistic Quick Tips

Can your child tell when a favorite pet is upset? Or can he determine the make of a motorcycle by the sound of its motor? If so, he may have an exceptional naturalist ability. You can help strengthen naturalistic talents when you:

  • Go birdwatching with your child and ask her to identify birds by either looking at their markings or by listening to their calls.

  • Ask your child to read the newspaper and predict what local and national events will have an impact on the environment and Earth's inhabitants.

  • Plant an herb garden and ask your child to describe how each of the herbs is used in either cooking or medicine.

  • Take trips to natural history museums to see how biologists and anthropologists classify living things.

Don't forget to hydrate! Forego sugary juices and sodas and pack a bottle of water in your child's lunch. If your child likes a little more flavor, spice it up with lemon, lime, cucumbers, or fresh fruit.
