This week marked the 40th Anniversary of Sesame Street, a show that revolutionized educational television. In 1969, the original intent of the show was to teach children basic math, the alphabet, and general concepts through frequent repetition, visual presentation, and dynamic characters.

Over the years, cable television has grown immensely and added numerous educational shows, but the concept of providing interactive ways for children to learn is still a tried-and-true model of teaching. From hands-on activities at Minnesota Children’s Museum, to bedtime jingles passed on from generation-to-generation, children should always be provided with fun and exciting ways to learn.

When helping your children with their homework tonight or teaching your toddler the ABC’s, try creating your own dance, puppet show or song.

Happy Birthday Big Bird and Friends, thanks for making learning fun for the last 40 years.
