Explore planet Earth--while having tons of fun! More than 50 cool projects, along with illustrations and sidebars for parents, will take youngsters on a trip from their very own rooms to the wide world beyond. Go on a treasure hunt throughout the house and see where your favorite things came from (and try not to be jealous of the places they've been). Trace your family tree as far back as you can to find out everyone's nationalities--and then "publish" your results on a batik banner. Carry on an ancient tradition by making a classic clay bowl. Rat-a-tat-tat: Can you hear the rhythm? Sure you can, because drums are the universal sound of music. Make one out of cardboard and bang a beat. Treat your taste buds to Chinese Five-Spice Popcorn, French Pain au Chocolat (that's chocolate bread to you!), Nigerian Fruit Salad, and German Pretzels. Take a citizenship quiz, watch your world manners, and discover how people from other lands hear animal sounds. For parents there are informative sidebars, with fun facts and activities that will help you answer all those questions the kids are sure to ask.and you might not know the answers to. While children are enjoying themselves, they'll learn firsthand how the things they do can make a real difference to our planet!
