Children just love learning about amazing phenomena, and they’ll be more than amused to learn . . . “Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Whirlpools”!
Professor Ana Lyze and her research “spy” team specialize in the obscure, the abnormal, and the bizarre. They search land and sea for oddities, such as outlandish insects, rare diseases, unique gems, and more, and make each one a star.
With The Curiosity Files™, children will become educated about subjects they’d never find otherwise. Did you know that the two strongest whirlpools in the world are off the coast of Norway? Did you know that whirlpools are far less dangerous to seamen than they used to be, due to boat engines as well as modern navigational equipment and mapping, which allow them to detect and avoid whirlpools?
Whirlpools will keep your kids occupied and answering questions like these:
- What causes a whirlpool?
- Where can whirlpools be found?
- What does a scientist call a whirlpool?
- Does sea life benefit from whirlpools?
- And a whole lot more!
With this unit, kids will think creatively and exercise their minds while exploring many interesting and related topics. Kids will encounter The Write Stuff, with grammar and writing activities in which they will examine classic tales featuring whirlpools and create their own fictional story. Using the whirlpool and the theme of balance in creation as a launching point, students will practice math concepts by using algebraic equations to balance addition problems, develop an understanding of even numbers, work clever story problems, and much more! And there are two levels of vocabulary lists and spelling worksheets—elementary and middle/high school.
In the Lab will bring smiles and the hands-on use of newfound knowledge. Build a Whirlpool in a Bottle or experiment with water and gravity. You’ll find a Good Old Days history lesson along with a history-based writing assignment and creative map work.
