What is Research?
Research is an essential skill in today’s age. Children need to learn how to search for information independently, analyze, and present the findings.
Research helps to fulfill intellectual needs, provides freedom to explore the topic, enables overall development, classroom management, and boosts motivation.
Research led by children is the process of learning and knowing relevant information about their surroundings.
Why is Research Important to Children?
Research helps children to have done a detailed analysis of everything.
- Enhances knowledge: It improves learning capacity. Research allows children to know detailed information about that topic. To learn a lesson, they need to know the unknown facts, do in-depth study, and complete analysis.
- Clarifies confusion: It helps in a clear understanding of the topic and clarification of complicated facts and figures. It prepares the mind for a better understanding of concepts and theories.
- Develops social bond: Children collaborate with others to gain maximum benefits from research.
- Builds interest and curiosity: Children have curious minds. They have a thirst for knowledge. Research helps to encourage children and young people of all ages who are reluctant to learn. Asking questions and finding out new things is important for understanding the reasons behind various things children observe and learn over a period of time.
