The World Almanac: A Tool for Building Study Skills
The World Almanac for Kids is an ideal tool for developing your students' study skills. And a scavenger hunt for information is a fun way to use this useful tool!
On this week's Books in Education page, we introduced you to The World Almanac for Kids 1998. I can't think of a more useful tool for developing your students' study skills!
So, why not send your kids on a hunt -- a scavenger hunt of sorts? They can hunt without leaving their classroom or their desks! Students can work individually or in teams as they pore over the pages of The World Almanac for Kids in search of high-interest facts.
Following are some questions prepared by the editors of The World Almanac for Kids. See how many of the questions your students answer correctly using the almanac as their source. (The Answer Key is at the bottom of the page.)
