As I discussed final week, my daughters have began to get pleasure from Elinor Wonders Why on PBS Youngsters. Whereas they have been watching an episode this morning I went on the PBS Youngsters web site to seek for some Elinor-themed studying actions. I wasn’t disillusioned with what I discovered.
The dad and mom web page for Elinor Wonders Why is stuffed with sources for actions for fogeys do with their kids. After all, the sources are additionally nice for elementary college academics who’re searching for some hands-on actions. On the dad and mom web page you may discover instructions for making Elinor-themed finger puppets, placemats, mini-libraries, costumes, and lots of different craft initiatives. You will additionally discover instructions and templates for creating investigative actions like figuring out bugs and sorting “treasures” present in nature.
PBS Youngsters additionally gives some on-line video games for teenagers to play and study from. These video games embody the investigative model video games Elinor’s Nature Journey, Pond Life, and Yard Life. There are seven video games in all. All the video games could be performed with out having to sign-up or signal into any type of account. The video games I examined labored equally effectively within the internet browser on my laptop computer and on my iPad.
