Curious Minds: 40 Hands-on Activities to Inspire a Love of Learning

Curious Minds 40 Hands-on Activities - Ty KolstedtA 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.
