I am so excited to share with you today a project that I have been squirreled away working on. I can honestly say I LOVE each and every project in my brand new ebook, Kaleidoscope: Hands-On Explorations in Colour (and Color!) for Kids (okay, and my kids love them too, but that’s despite the point!) This is STEM, art and literacy like you’ve never seen it before – dressed up in all the colours of the rainbow! Here’s the lowdown:
There is no denying it, kids love colour!
And kids love to create, experiment, explore, engineer, imagine and share their great ideas. Kaleidoscope: Hands-On Explorations in Colour (and Color!) is the perfect resource for inspiring kids to do all that (and more!) with colour!
Kaleidoscope includes 25 awe-inspiring projects that integrate learning across a range of subject areas including the STEM topics of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, plus art, literacy and cooking. You’ll find printable resource pages, field trip ideas, related book selections and BONUS ideas for simple sensory play fun for younger children. These are simple fun ideas, many of which I am sure you are not likely to have come across before – like jello printmaking!
Kaleidoscope is a great resource for teachers, parents, camp organisers, youth and community group leaders, homeschoolers, after school care educators, in fact, anyone who spends time with kids as they learn.
The projects are most definitely engaging and hands on! Designed to be used with kids aged 5 to 55, each project includes a supplies list, step by step instructions, full colour photographs and ideas for extending learning. Plus we’ve made sure that the activities only require materials that you most probably already have in your home or classroom, or that are readily available at the grocery store.
