We learn through play, observation, and exploration!Dimecres 12 de Maig de 2021
Our Young learners learn through PLAY, OBSERVATION, and EXPLORATION. So … Scavenger hunts are an easy, adaptable, and fun way to explore the world around us & start making discoveries of our own.
But Did you know scavenger hunts have numerous benefits for kids? I explore a few below:
🌱 Build Problem-Solving Skills
Hands-on learning has numerous benefits, including increased memory of previously taught concepts. Scavenger hunts allow kids to practice problem-solving in a tangible way. It helps to reinforce and act-out methods they have learned.
🌱 Exercise both body and mind
As discussed, scavenger hunts help exercise the mind by reinforcing problem-solving skills. However, they can also be good exercise for the body. You can incorporate clues that get kids moving and running from place to place.
🌱 Teach Teamwork
Participating in a group or pair scavenger hunt helps teach kids the value of teamwork, in addition to promoting social interaction. Kids will have to work together to solve clues and get to the final destination. Learning to work in a team is an essential skill throughout a child’s life, so why not teach it in a fun way?
