Audubon for Kids brings together content and DIY activities to give kids and their families a safe space to explore and feel connected to the natural world.
El objetivo de esta página es de juntar actividades de toda la red nacional de educadores ambientales de Audubon, incluyendo el currículo de la clase Aventuras de Audubon, además de actividades de bricolaje relacionadas y contenido de los editores de Audubon. Estas actividades pueden realizarse en casa o en un patio o parque, a veces con la ayuda de una computadora. El objetivo no es enseñar a un niño a nombrar e identificar las especies de aves, sino más bien darle espacio para explorar y sentirse conectado con el mundo natural. Si eres padre o cuidador, eso significa que no tienes que preocuparte por tu propio conocimiento de las aves o las plantas. Todo lo que necesitas es ser un compañero de la curiosidad de tu hijo.
