Using Block Parties to Cultivate and Support Kids’ Interests in Nature and Science

I’ve been running our neighborhood’s block party for about 10 years now. Over those years, our neighbors have been very receptive to me using party activities to encourage their children’s interests in nature and science.

The theme for this year’s block party is “No Child Left Inside.” We will focus on getting kids outside to be with and appreciate nature. However, we will also show kids things they can do outside if they are more interested in cars, trucks, and trains — or other kinds of science.

I posted a discussion and preliminary schedule on my other blog, Neighborhood Nature. Please go here to read it!
