How to raise science loving adventurous kids

    Posted by  ·  April 25, 2016

    I want my daughter to love the outdoors! I want her to view her world as a place to be explored and enjoyed.  I hope she will always be inquisitive and open for new adventures.

    To make this happen I realize I have to model this behavior for her.  Recently on behalf of Animal Jam I was able to do just that.  I was able to show my daughter that the adventure starts with me!

    Our amazing guides from Animal Jam proved that this is true! Their adventurous  joy filled spirit was contagious!

    They did for us what we can do for our children! If we want to have science loving adventurous kids we can

    • Embrace new experiences
    • Be open to trying new things (even when it is eating puffin)
    • Seek information, notice and inspect our world
    • Discover the unexpected
    • Find joy in our moments
    • Be in awe of the beauty that surrounds us

    Their example showed me to love the experience and not even worry if a horse wanted a  little nibble!

    Animal Jam has an in-game Journey Book where kids find and collect cool facts about animals and environments in Jamaa (the world where everything in Animal Jam takes place). Help find fun critters in Kimbara Outback or in the Coral Reef!

    Kids can visit Brady Barr’s Lab or Tierney Thys’ Aquarium where you can watch videos of these scientists out in the field and even submit your own questions for them to answer in future videos. Do you know what a baby whale is called?
