Talk about moving around a lot! In the late 1700s, the U.S. government was shifted from Philadelphia to New York and then to Princeton, New Jersey. Congress couldn’t seem to settle on a permanent home for the nation’s new government. Southerners wanted the capital in the South. Northerners wanted it in the North. Eventually, it was agreed that Maryland and Virginia would each give the government land along the Potomac River for the new capital, which would not be part of either state. Congress named the area the District of Columbia, but people called it Washington, in honor of the country’s first presidents. Today, the city is Washington, District of Columbia, or D.C. for short.
Washington is a bustling international city, a tourist mecca, and home to over 600,000 citizens. Take a tour of Washington, D.C. — past and present — with this fascinating and comprehensive KIDS DISCOVER title.
The topics in the various magazines have sparked great conversational skills as well as working on language literacy with my students… GREAT TOPICS for a variety of students.
Kids Discover magazines have been an indispensable tool for me. They have amazing text features with colorful illustrations and photos and very well written articles.
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.
My son and I always look forward to the newest issue of Kids Discover - we both learn something new!
