A multidisciplinary activity book from four core academic areas-math, science, language arts, and social studies Unlike the many activity books devoted solely to one type of activity-science experiments, art activities, math games, brain teasers, and the like- Curious Minds takes a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating science, social studies, math, language arts, world languages, and more in 40 hands-on activities that promote kids' critical thinking and engaged interest in the world they live in. Designed for teachers, parents, or homeschoolers searching for new ways to motivate students aged 9--12, this illustrated resource provides a short mini-lesson for each activity, giving educational background information, related lingo, a materials list, step-by-step directions, and guidance for extending the activity. The wide range of activities-from exploring the physics of parachute flight to making homemade ink to testing how pollutants affect plants-ensures every learner's interest will be piqued.

If you picked tried one project a week from this book, you'd have nearly a year's worth of hands-on lessons for kids ages 8 and up. You'll make ink from berries, grow plants in oil-polluted soil, learn to say 'hello' in a dozen languages, and get to know your local elected officials. A fantastic range of topics to choose from, with just enough background information to get you started!
