Parent-Child Science Activities with Veggies & Fruits
Without their families’ help, children can’t do science experiments at home, plant seeds or even access to veggies and fruits. How does your science center adapt programs to engage parents so that learning and healthy snacking continues? Do you use take-home pieces to inform parents about what their children learned? Do parents participate alongside their children?
