Nothing beats the great outdoors. But if your family is having some indoor time, don’t dismay. Your kids can still get a nature fix of sorts. Virtual nature, while inferior to the real thing, can be an effective way to help kids learn about the natural world. And in fact, it can even help your child learn something most schools don’t teach—natural history.
