Urban planning
If you live in a town or city, you can introduce your children to the wonders of urban planning while you're out walking. Question your kids about why they think the roads are laid out in a certain way, or why there might be a certain amount of green space. This doesn't need to get technical, but it's great to get your kids thinking about their surroundings and the needs of the community.
