Activity: Take a trip Downtown with the family.
Location: Downtown in your city.
Ages: All ages.
I think it’s safe to say that most of us frequent the Downtown area of our city. But here’s the question, Have you ever took the time to learn the history behind the buildings? How about the cultural significance of the landmarks?
If your answer to these questions is no, use this Weekend as an opportunity to get familiar with your city. Take a trip downtown with your family and pay close attention to your surroundings.
Include your children, have them write down the names of the people, places, and things that helped construct the area. Once you get home, research the information as a family.
Use the information you gather as a learning opportunity, kids need to understand the importance of creating your own perspective. This will also provide them a new found respect and understanding of the city you live in.
