An ocean poster to print
My husband forwarded me this excellent article from the Smithsonian magazine, and I wanted to share it with you.
This is the type of little poster that we print to hang on a child’s wall or keep in a folder of interesting things for children to browse — children adore these folders, by the way, as we keep them full of delightful images of the natural world from animals to rock formations.
You are perfectly free to print nice things from the internet for your own use at home — one simply cannot sell or distribute them. I mention this because a few parents asked me about it earlier. When your child is older, you can explain this.
Please do be careful about the type of posters you display. I have seen legions of young adults who believe that plants only need sunshine and water to grow because their kindergarten posters never included soil nutrients, minerals, microbiome, or toxins. I will find or make a proper poster for this as my old hand-drawn one is a bit too worn out to share.
When your child displays a curiosity about a certain topic, you can provide more information about this topic in the form of photos or drawings for their nature folder or posters, books, and other resources.
