Young children gain foundation knowledge throughout this stage which builds into advanced topics as they grow. As very young children have direct experiences in their home and immediate environment, they will be able to build more accurate concepts of the Earth. These experiences will be useful when children move to the next stage of thinking.
You can help your children to Discover The World though interesting and fun activities and by encouraging them to take part on the day to day activities i.e. Before going on a trip anywhere, show your children where you are going on a map. Keep a globe or an atlas near the television – any time a place pops up, pause the programme and quickly show them where it is in the world.
