According to Philip Brown, a sociologist of education, Inquisitive Learning is learning which is intrinsically motivated. At an early age, children are actively curious and have the desire to explore many new things around them. Here, Mother Nature can play a vital role for the young learners to develop their curiosity to know many new things. At a very small age, a child should be exposed to nature and the surroundings with proper care and necessary measures so that he embraces its beauty and learns its importance.

When we allow our child to be curious their mind gets active and starts working. As the mind is a muscle that becomes stronger through continual exercise, the mental exercise caused by curiosity makes the mind stronger and sharper. To keep on positively moving the brain, a child should be allowed to develop his curiosity.

The more the child is curious about any particular concept, after knowing the solution he will remember that for a longer period. Curiosity should be developed among the learners through different activities to make the lesson more interesting and fun. A child’s curiosity should not be neglected. It may show adverse effects in the future like the child won’t show any interest in exploring things and won’t ask questions. To make the learning more effective, inquisitive learning should be progressed.
