What's the best way to teach my 5yr old about speed & distance?
My 5yr old seems really, really interested in the concepts of speed and distance.
Almost every time we get in the car, we have a conversation like this:
kid: "How fast are we going?"
dad: "About 65 miles per hour."
kid: "How fast is that?"
dad: "Well, if we went this speed for one hour, we would travel 65 miles."
kid: "How long is 65 miles?"
We've been having this conversation for months now, and it doesn't seem to really have any relevancy for him.
What are some good ways that I could help him understand the concepts of speed and distance?
