In Buried Treasure, kids will discover that “treasure” can mean much, much more than just a buried trunk full of pirate booty. Treasures of all kinds are explored here: from the gold, silver, and gems recovered from shipwrecks to the ancient art found in European caves and the golden glories of King Tut’s tomb. Kids will launch their explorations with the story of the Atocha, a 17th-century Spanish shipwreck containing $400 worth of valuable loot that took Mel Fisher and his team of divers over 16 years to recover. They’ll also learn about other recovered shipwrecks, including the Titanic, and check out the most famous ones on a map of shipwreck sites around the world.
Other kinds of buried treasure – for kids interested in archaeology – take the spotlight next. They’ll read about the incredible drawings, weapons, and tools left deep in caves by Ice Age people, and take a look at finds from renowned cave sites like Altamira, in Spain. Next, they’ll dig deep into the tomb of the Lord of Sipán in Peru, marvel at the jade shroud of a Han dynasty prince, and examine the priceless articles recovered from Egyptian tombs. Finally, they’ll be encouraged to look for valuable finds close to home with a section on how stamps, coins, comics, and other collectibles can be considered today’s “buried treasure”. For kids who have the collecting bug, this issue is sure to become a prized possession!
I love the Kids Discover magazines. I've gotten them from the very beginning and always have ways to use them in my classroom.
I ordered 20 copies of the Bones issue for my husband to put in his patient rooms. He has had very positive feedback from his patients about them.
Our WHOLE family enjoys these magazines -- we keep all of them, they make excellent reference guides for school projects/papers!
