Helping Your Child at Home

There are many ways to support your child's learning at home. One of the best is to read to your children and have them read to you. Another great support is to practice math facts. An additional fun activity is to visit a museum.

Museums allow children the means to learn and play in an empowering environment. Although the Harvard Museum of Natural History is not a children's museum, museums in general help children transcend time and various places through the many exhibits.

During the Columbus Day Weekend, my family visited The Harvard Museum of Natural History. The museum is free to Massachusetts residents on Sunday morning from 9:00 am to noon with proof of residency.

My preschooler and third grader have been to this museum many times and always want to go back. In addition to this being a great learning experience, it is also a great family experience.
