Extending this activity

  • -Follow up on a topic of interest to your child by seeking out a source of information (fireman, mail man, chef, etc.).

    -Read "Wild About Books" by Judy Sierra. Children will enjoy this story about zoo animals developing a love for reading based on their own personal interests and questions.

Adjust for an older child

As the older child identifies an appropriate source for asking for information about a specific topic, challenge him to formulate the question he would ask in his own words.

Adjust for a younger child

Provide choices for the younger child. For example, “If I wanted to find out information about my teeth, should I ask a dentist or a fireman?”
