As a homeschooling family, we always try and make learning as hands-on as possible. We incorporate "field trips", documentaries, and more into our day to day lives to ensure learning never takes the proverbial backseat, even during the summer months.
One thing we do during the summer to ensure the kids' minds don't turn to absolute mush is reading and exploring the world around us and all of its wonders. National Geographic Kids offers a ton of books that allow us to do just that. Our favorite as of late would have to be the brand new National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020.
Hailed by School Library Journal as “one of the leaders in the world of almanacs” this year's edition features all new content, such as interviews with renowned National Geographic explorers in each chapter, a special look at what was going on in the world when the first National Geographic Kids Almanac came out 10 years ago, plus the results of the 2019 Almanac Challenge — Lions Forever Poster Contest — and a new challenge for kids who want to get involved with helping our planet.
The best-selling kids’ almanac ON THE PLANET is packed with hundreds of photos and facts, crafts and fascinating features about animals, science, nature, technology, conservation and more. For book lovers and reluctant readers alike, the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 is a compelling and balanced combination of:
* Fun and games, including activities, jokes, quizzes and comics
* Practical resources, including homework help and fast facts and maps of every country
* Exciting sections on pop culture, cool technology, extreme exploration and more
* Lighthearted favorites like the “Cutest Animals of 2020!”
In addition to not only being fun and educational, the National Geographic Kids Almanac is also designed to inspire young readers to be the change they want to see in the world around them, encouraging them to become more involved environmentally, socially and in other ways.
In this year’s edition, National Geographic Kids launches the 20/20 Visionary Challenge, asking readers to imagine the world 10 years from now and to picture a positive change, invention or discovery they’d like to see become reality, in whatever area interests them: animals, people, places, science, technology or beyond — the sky’s the limit! Kids will be able to read some of their great ideas in next year’s Almanac 2021.
Another source of inspiration? The real-life National Geographic explorers who are the cornerstone of National Geographic’s philosophy and mission. The 2020 edition highlights many of them including Christine Chen, a geologist and climate scientist; Katey Walter Anthony, an aquatic ecosystem ecologist; and Kakani Katija, a bioengineer to name just a few profiled.
We are loving all the information in this latest edition of the National Geographic Kids Almanac. There are plenty of vivid images, fun activities, and of course, tons of opportunity to learn new things in a fun and engaging way. We plan to keep our copy in tow all summer so we can learn more about the world around us on our many adventures here in the local NE Ohio area.
If you're looking for a great way to keep education at the forefront during the summer months, definitely check out National Geographic Kids.
