This exciting era of our history is the focus of Colonial America; for kids eager to learn about how our country was founded, and what life was like for the first immigrants, this issue will be a favorite. The scene is set with a dramatic description of the landing of the Mayflower in 1620; after that, the arrival of other colonists is covered, along with a list of turning points and key events in Colonial America, for kids. A close-up look at the lives of early Pilgrims follows, with an emphasis on how they had to build entire houses and towns from scratch and maintain their survival with hard daily work: Even kids were forced to contribute their own labor!
A section on colonial Williamsburg provides an excellent snapshot of one of the most important early settlements of Colonial America; for kids who want to learn what life was like in the main towns during this era, this should be an engrossing read. Closing out the issue are accounts of home life in this period; kids will enjoy reading about all the things colonial villagers had to build or produce themselves, and they’ll get a kick out of the section on colonial school kids, who used books made out of animal skin and horn. Finally, they’ll get a good grounding in how the growth of business in the colonies eventually put them into conflict with their home countries.
My girl reads it cover to cover the day we get them and I love having them on the shelf for reference ;) ... thanks for a great and fun learning adventure tool.
My son is a big fan of your magazine... In the days of non-stop TV and Video games, magazines like yours are a breath of fresh air!
My 11 year-old stops what she is doing to read these when she gets them in the mail. I find them very educational myself and I enjoy reading them as well.
My daughter just got her first issue of this magazine, and we're loving it - Thank you so much!
Our WHOLE family enjoys these magazines -- we keep all of them, they make excellent reference guides for school projects/papers!
Great resource! Really nicely done kids magazine that adults love, too.
Even with 7th graders, I use the magazines since the illustrations are superb!
My 10 year old daughter loves this magazine - blood, spiders, chemistry - keep it coming!
Kids Discover is such a wonderful resource for my classroom. My students enjoy reading about all the interesting topics.
My kids are all older now (2 high school, 1 college) and Kids Discover is STILL our most waited for, most read, most loved magazine we get. THANKS!!!
