Engaging children at home?
Here is an article on activities Texas 4-H is doing to help engage children at home! There are some great resources with little to no expense needed!
There are also many interesting and educational activities available through the 4-H website, said Courtney Dodd, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension associate director for health, families and youth, College Station.
Texas 4-H is the youth development component of AgriLife Extension. It is the largest youth development program in the state, reaching more than 550,000 youth ages 5-18.
“One of the many things we encourage young people to do is be physically active and live a healthy lifestyle,” Dodd said. “These goals are always important but probably have an added importance given the current circumstances.”
She said the 4-H Healthy Living Activity Guide has 30 interesting and engaging hands-on activities to help kids develop good habits and live a healthy life.
Texas 4-H will be hosting fun and educational videos under the banner Texas 4-H Virtual Experience on the Texas 4-H Facebook page at 10 a.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through late April. The videos will be saved to the Facebook page and will be placed on Instagram. There will be links parents can use to access the related 4-H Explore Guide after each video ends.
Explore Guides provide learning opportunities on a variety of topics and each lesson has an activity associated with it.
The dates and topic for the Texas 4-H Virtual Experience are:
- March 24, 25, 26 – Agriculture and Livestock
- March 31, April 1, 2 – STEM
- April 7, 8, 9 – Natural Resources
- April 14, 15, 16 – Junior Master Gardeners
- April 21, 22, 23 – Leadership and Citizenship
Additionally, the National 4-H website offers 5 Ways to Keep Kids Engaged and Learning At Home as a resource to help kids maintain a sense of normalcy and keep them on track in their learning and personal development while at home.
