As a science teacher, I appreciate any and every opportunity for kids to get excited about science in their lives and around them.
KNOW magazine comes out every other month and helps answer those what, why, where, and how questions all kids ask. KNOW is engaging, fun, and full of ways to satisfy the natural curiosity of children; and it’s geared at children ages 6 to 9. Each issue is packed with news articles, experiments, puzzles, dinosaurs, astronomy, the human body, and more.
The free online issue features shapes as it’s main topic, but also has articles, activities and experiences about patterns, too. And, if patterns and shapes aren’t your child’s thing, there are also features about the ocean, see-through "glass frogs", nature, comics, puzzles and more.
As a teacher and parent (and I’m sure a homeschooling parent would enjoy this, too), both the magazine and the website feature experiments and teacher resource guides to help you through the magazine. There are also fun complimentary coloring pages and computer backgrounds.
