Share the wonders of science with your elementary schooler! 

Exercise can decrease stress

and boost academic success!

• Encourage your child to collect
and organize objects, such as
leaves, rocks, shells or bottle caps.
• Encourage investigation. Give your
child a magnifying glass. Ask, “What
things do you see?” “What’s similar
and what’s different with and with-
out the glass?”
• Talk about the science that happens
at home. Which cereals get soggy in
milk? Why do foods in the refrigera-
tor get moldy? Why do some plants
need more water than others?
• Show an interest in science. Look
at the moon and the stars with your
child. Weigh snow. Mix paint colors.
• Helps students feel happier. Te
endorphins exercise releases also
increase energy levels. A case of
writer’s block? Shooting some
hoops might help your child return
to the task focused and energized.
• Is calming. When people are
focused on the exercise or sport
at hand, they are likely to stop
focusing on their worries.
• Increases self-confdence. When
children feel like they have more
control over their bodies, it can
make them feel more in control
of their studies as well.
