If you and your child love the tales of The Questioneers in Ms. Greer’s second grade class, from Sofia Valdez, Future Prez to Rosie Revere, Engineer, don’t forget to check out the new accompanying activity books.
Iggy Peck’s Big Project Book for Amazing Architects includes more than 40 pages of activities and stories for kids. The first few pages review the story of Iggy Peck and his dreams of designing, followed by 40 projects for kids to draw and craft. From floor plans with furniture measured out on graph paper to building giant structures with basic materials like straws and masking tape, this book keeps the fun coming. As an added bonus, kids won’t realize the learning packed between these pages.
Ada Twist’s Big Project Book for Stellar Scientists focuses on STEM projects such as observing chemical reactions and looking at the stars, while Rosie Revere’s Big Project Book for Bold Engineers covers more hands-on projects, like building a solar oven. No matter which volume you choose, each book offers 40 or more different projects and ideas. You may need some materials, like tape, aluminum foil, and others, to complete all the projects. But most items come from basic household supplies, and can be easily found at stores if you don’t have them on hand.
Give your kids the gift of ingenuity and watch their creativity soar with this inspirational series of activity books.
