Physics seems to be such a difficult subject that many students avoid. The only way to master this subject is to be accustomed to it. As parents, you can introduce Physics to your children as early as possible. Here we have some tips to make your kids love Physics.
Remember that physics needs experiments for better understanding. Therefore, the first thing you have to do is to make your children accustomed to such experiments. Make them intrigued to ask how something can happen. Just find simple experiments, but attractive.
There are typical children who are so reluctant to study, even to hear any words dealing with studying. Hence, when you ask your children to get involved in those experiments, avoid the terms of studying. Create the atmosphere as if you were playing with them. They will be more relaxed that they don’t realize that they are actually studying Physics.
Speaking on simple experiments, you can practice to make a volcano with your children. You only need to prepare sand, a used bottle of mineral water, vinegar, two-spoon baking soda, food coloring (choose red one to give a sense of lava), and a tray.
Firstly, put the baking soda and food coloring into the bottle. Then place the bottle on the tray with freestanding position. Cover the body of the bottle with the sand until it looks like a volcano. Remember not to cover the mouth of the bottle with the stand. Pour the vinegar into the bottle and you will see an explosion of a volcano with the red lava. You can search another simple experiment in the internet. After the experiments, try to explain how it can happen.
Then it is important to give your children a chance to practice another Physics concept they might find. Help them with when they have difficulties. Also, you have to pay attention to their mood. If you see that they seemingly get bored, you can play a game with them. Or, you might make a quiz. To motivate them to answer your questions, prepare some rewards, like chocolate or candies, or anything they like. Give them those rewards when they have the correct answer.
These activities demand parents to be more active. Nevertheless, while you are teaching your children, you get the benefits. You are actually studying that you can improve your knowledge.
