Why Is It Important For Kids To Do Winter Theme Activities?

Regardless of the theme, integrating many curricular areas around one theme is a great way for kids to learn.

Background Knowledge

Approaching winter, snow and ice from multiple angles (science, math, art, literacy) really builds a strong store of knowledge related to winter.

Connect with Nature

Using themes like seasons helps kids connect with nature. What better way to learn about snow than to get right out in it?!

Interest

It’s no secret that early learning activities must engage the learner. Using themes that are exciting and interesting to children piques their minds and spurs motivation to learn.

Make Connections

When you integrate learning thorugh various themes, kids can then begin to make connections between and among themes. For example, they can compare/contrast winter vs. summer.
