Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- About 2-thousand parents and their children are learning by doing.

This is the 22nd annual Hands - on Learning Fair at the Purpur Arena in Grand Forks.

There are 50 activities ranging from dancing to trying on firefighter gear.

Organizers say it's vital to introduce active learning to small children because it helps them gain lifelong skills.

Judy Milavetz- Learning Fair Coordinator: "Learning is not sitting at a table with paper and pencil taking in information. Learning in its purest, best form, is children actively engaging with materials."

Parents also got ideas for summer learning activities, including reading programs at the library.
