Do You Have Kids Who Are Mad For Science? Get Them in The Know!

Mad Science KNOW Magazine

This past summer we attended a Mad Science Party in my town. Every kid at the party was amazed and interested at what "science guy" was talking about. It started a whole new way of thinking for the parents and kids who attended. Science is found in everything and kids are very interested in things that they can see, prove, touch; things that are tangible. What a wonderful way to learn.

Recently, I heard about KNOW thanks to Mom Central.
KNOW is for younger readers, aged 6 to 9. With fascinating, age-appropriate articles, colourful imagery and illustrations, and fun, hands-on experiments, KNOW captures the imagination of even the youngest scientists, with fun facts on cool science...

• dinosaurs and animals from around the world

• the solar system, planets, and stars

• our Earth, climate, and seasons

• technology, then and now

• fascinating scientists, cool facts, latest discoveries, and newest inventions

And much more! KNOW is edited by science writer Adrienne Mason, author of over 20 books for children, and features Diane Swanson, one of Canada’s most accomplished children’s science writers.

Both of my kids are very interested in all things science and this is the perfect magazine for our house. The pictures are colorful, informative and fun. 

We really like the names of the "Departments"
Like Know How
Sky Spies
Know and Tell
Home Lab

The Hands on projects are manageable and fun. They include a supply list, pictures and directions. I love pictures! We are going to attempt one about finding the hidden colors in black ink. 

This is the perfect teacher gift for the holiday for your 1st - 5th grade teachers or the "science kid" on your list. I have two nephews who would love a subscription to this magazine for the holidays. My Christmas buy list is getting smaller by the minute. 

To subscribe head here. BTW...they also have a magazine called YES for ages 10-15 years.

    This sounds cool but try convincing my daughter of 8. I should just get the magazine without asking her.
