Ask Questions About How Things Work

The next time a small appliance breaks at your house, don't throw it away. Instead, help your child take it apart to learn how it works. This type of hands-on learning will help a kinesthetic learner – one who learns through physical touch – gain a more thorough understanding. If possible, look for additional information online or at your local library. Encourage your child to ask questions about how things work.
