Science Fun

Some tips from Sue, the Barton Science specialist:

  • Check out the National Wildlife Federation (this is the group that publishes Ranger Rick and Your Big Backyard kids' magazines)
    • Moms and Dads: Use the left navigation in Your Big Backyard for coloring pages, fun science experiments, recipes
  • Read World of Wonder by Rachel Carson - a great book for parents (and kids)
  • Take a walk at a local nature center or in one of the beautiful Minneapolis parks
  • Visit a local library or the Barton Media Center and ask for books about nature, plants or animals
  • Simply take time to just sit in your own yard and relax and see what flies, crawls, and flutters by.
