Family activities are one of the best ways to improve learning skills. Going on field trips – and then doing the twist after field trip activity builds not only a good family bonding time but also improves memory skills, comprehension skills, writing skills, even drawing skills.

Family Activities: Weekly Trips

Once you get home from your weekly trip, talk about it and write down what your favorite thing was. You can use the graphic organizers in Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills to make this really easy. Add pictures and/or drawings. Then compile this into a family scrapbook.
Family Activities: Nature Activities/Adventures
- Scavenger hike
- Family hike
Take pictures or do nature rubbings while you are on your hike. Then, do the stretch to really build memory skills…after getting home, talk about the hike or treasure hunt. Write down what your favorite thing was. Again, use the graphic organizers in Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills. The graphic organizers make this as easy as filling-in-the-blanks! Add pictures and/or drawings. Then add this to the family scrapbook.
