Stamp out summer brain drain with these tips from Chicago teachers

 
 
 
 

Science

  • Gardening is a great way to introduce children to the science of nature in the summer months. Germinate and plant seeds (save seeds from your produce) and grow your own vegetables or herbs.
  • Keep a weather log. Note temperature patterns and weather changes. Learn more about the science of summer storms by visiting the Museum of Science and Industry's newest exhibit, Science Storms, or check out related online activities at msichicago.org
  • Have your child research animals they are interested in and create a scrapbook containing information and pictures of each animal. Follow up with a visit to see the real deal at your local zoo.
