It's great for kids to go to school and get an education, but there are some things that you just can't learn when you're sitting at a desk, especially when you're bored. I'm sure that, as a parent, you can remember having that feeling as a kid and you can relate to your child on that level. That's why it can be good to break up the monotony now and then with educational visits to various places.
One fabulous place that you could visit with your child is the science museum. There, you can find exhibits on many different aspects of science. For example, you and your child might see an exhibit on various rock formations. You might also see an exhibit on how the weather works.
Now, if you visit a different wing, you might see the history of various species. Your kids will be in awe of the dinosaur skeletons and figures of woolly mammoths and so forth. That can be a great scientific history lesson.
In another part of the museum, there might be hands-on exhibits that teach things like how electricity works or why certain chemicals change colors when mixed. The possibilities are practically endless.
