Observing and Discussing with a Child

Duration: 1:43

In this video, an adult prompts a child to view an animal on a zoo webcam.  Observing and discussing can take many different forms, largely because observation is an unpredictable process. Looking at plants as they grow in a garden, for example, will be very different from observing otters in an aquarium.  No matter the situation, this video offers you guidance on how you can capitalize on a child's curiosity and turn any interesting event into an opportunity for learning.
