Learning in Everyday Activities

Last Updated by Pre-School U Editor on

This section illustrates more ways that learning can be enhanced through everyday activities.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Is there anything you saw in these short videos that you are already doing?
  • Depending on the season and the weather, what else could you help your child learn about when you are outside?
  • Where are some of the places you go or could go to give your child even more opportunities to observe and learn new things? (park, mall, library, zoo, museum...)
  • What were some of your favorite placed to go when you were a child? What made them special and memorable?


Learning at Home Resources from PBS KIDS and PBS Parents



  • Sid the Science Kid: Exploring Measurement - Leaves come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and textures. Watch this video of kids exploring leaves in a park. Then you and your child can go into your own backyard or nearby park to explore leaves.

  • Peg + Cat: Cat Likes Circles - Cat likes to draw circles in his artwork. Can your child find circles in pictures or paintings? Where else can she find circles?
