  2. Talk about the display and share it with others.

Extensions

  • Set paper and pencil by the display so family members can leave comments and questions.
  • Bring part of the collection to the dinner table and talk about it while everyone eats.
  • Ask a question about the display that requires research and help the child find the answers.
