An easy activity to show kids the range of technology that is all around them at home, at school, or on a trip is a technology scavenger hunt.
Come up with a list of different aspects of technology – things that use electricity, things that include a wheel, things that create a sound, and things that use electricity – and make a list for your kids to find. Try to include some that have more than one answer, so that kids can test their creativity. Most children are surprised how much technology can be found inside a single room.
