4 Ways To Make Weekly Science Projects Part Of Your Routine
One of the best ways to spend quality time with your child is by incorporating weekly science projects as part of your daily routine. This helps build their interest in science, and also improve their analytical skills. Don’t think that you don’t have the time for all this, as these 4 tips will show you how you can easily make time in your busy schedule.
- 1. Decide on a topic each week
Add variety by covering a different topic every week. You could perhaps hang an idea board so that your child can write suggestions and ideas for science projects that week. Not only will this make your child interested in the project, it also makes them look forward to the time you set aside for science projects. Choose a project which you understand, and which your child will want to learn.
- 2. Make it feel like homework
Don’t stress on the fact that you are doing a science project. Make it something fun to look forward to. Do it with their homework so that you know what your child is doing at school, and can choose a project that goes along their lessons. This fosters better understanding and intrigue for the topic.
- 3. Set a fixed day every week
Decide on a specific day of the week where you can spend enough time to go through the science project and explain everything related to it. Make sure you have sufficient time so that your child doesn’t feel that you are too busy for them. You could perhaps set aside one to two hours a week, as it’s more than enough time to work on the project and even get other things done.
- 4. Involve the family
Why not make the science project a family affair by discussing about it over dinner? This gives you quality time with your family where you have a reason to sit down for a family dinner every week. You also have a topic to start a conversation and have some fun over dinner!
See? It’s not so difficult making weekly science projects a part of your routine! Just follow these 4 tips, and you will soon be making quite a few projects with your child!
