Synopsis

Explore Money! With 25 Great Projects by Cindy Blobaum

In Explore Money! With 25 Great Projects, money is more than something to earn, save, and spend. It's an opportunity to explore history, art, science, economics, and math! While checking out the change in their pockets and bills from their banks, young readers search for hidden treasures, learn how money can multiply, and see how countries keep their currency secure. Very large and very small numbers take on a new relevance when seen through the lens of money. Using familiar materials found in the home or classroom, young readers explore the cultural aspect of money as well as its physical properties, discovering how these properties have affected business and global relationships throughout history. Kids experiment with various substances to clean coins, scientifically test coin components, design their own currency, and plan how to allocate their own money. Understanding the whats, whys, and hows of currency helps children achieve financial literacy and establish a strong foundation for a healthy, life-long relationship with money. Explore Money! meets Common Core State Standards for literacy in language arts, and mathematics; Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.

Reviews

Explore Money! With 25 Great Projects Marla Conn, educational consultant Money is GREAT! I love the mad lib and the printing/etching activity in particular. This is truly a STEAM title. Neale Godfrey, Chairman, GreenStreet Commons, New York Times #1 Best Selling Author A great book to have for your kids to get the money conversations going! Praise for Explore Night Science! School Library Journal Six chapters cover the 'when

'why'

; seeing, hearing, smelling, and feeling the night; and, finally, night lights. The chapters on the senses are a fine introduction to how human senses work, with experiments that further explore the concepts. It isn't all serious science as there are plenty of silly jokes, such as, 'What did the atmosphere say to the Earth? I've got you covered!

... Information on what happens at night, nocturnal animal adaptations, and fun facts such as the reason that pirates wear eye patches will keep kids interested. This one will be worth staying up past bedtime for.
