Explore the Outdoors

Explore the Outdoors image

Rain or shine, anytime is a great time to get outside and explore. Whether visiting your local zoo, spending the day at the beach, or having a picnic in your backyard, engaging in outdoor exploration is a great way for kids to stay active and healthy, learn about nature, and develop important math and science skills.

Explore with PBS KIDS

PBS KIDS loves the great outdoors!  Through April 24th, PBS KIDS invites you to get inspired with some of our best friends from DINOSAUR TRAIN, WILD KRATTS and CURIOUS GEORGE.  Tune in March 30th and April 3rd when CURIOUS GEORGE “Swings Into Spring,” and don’t miss Explore the Outdoors Week April 20th – 24th.

You can explore the outdoors, too.  Here are a few tips, ideas and activities to get you started.
