Grand Canyon National Park Resources for Educators and Homeschoolers

7-11 year olds

This interactive multimedia ebook is especially appropriate for children 7-11 years old, and as a read aloud for younger children, and it would also be well-suited for an educational setting.

Divided into 12 chapters, the book lends itself to be read in several sessions at the age appropriate pace.

As a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold Recipient, Mysteries of the Grand Canyon has been selected among the best in family friendly media. The story, filled with videos, sounds and animations, is followed by an educational section where children may learn more about the topics included.  

 

The educational section makes this ebook perfect for school settings and for curious children who wish to expand their knowledge, it can also be helpful when planning a family vacation at the Grand Canyon or the summer’s camping trip.

Additional questions at the end of the book encourage children to do further research on their own.

This interactive multimedia ‘touch and play’ visit to the Grand Canyon is sure to entertain and engage any child, but it is especially created for younger children. Join Kristi Kay, a little Cairn Terrier, on an interactive multimedia visit to this National Park. 

Listen to the canyon’s sounds, watch brief video clips about life in the canyon, and discover opportunities for interaction on every page.  The short rhyming children’s story is fun and easy to read, while the book’s interactivity makes the journey entertaining. 

The ‘read aloud’ option makes this book appropriate especially for younger children. For older children, however, a collection of links to on-line videos, presented by the National Park Service, offers a more in depth experience.

 

The additional section about the Junior Ranger Program, which explains this special program for children, can make your next family vacation to National Parks even more rewarding.
