Activity Guide

by Faith Hickman Brynie

Welcome, teachers, parents, and kids!

Due to popular demand, we present this FREE ACTIVITY GUIDE to help you extend the fun and the learning beyond the pages of The Old Farmer's Almanac for Kids.

This guide is designed to help you identify opportunities for extending the fun and the learning beyond the pages of The Old Farmer's Almanac for Kids, Volume 4. In some cases, we ask questions, but we don't provide answers. This is because looking for the answer is often more important than the answer itself. It's the process, not the product, that matters.

To get the most from The Old Farmer's Almanac for Kids . . .

  • Begin by reading and talking together about interesting items in the Almanac.
  • Use entries in the Almanac to spur further discussion and research, whether in the classroom or library or on the Internet.
  • Encourage questions. You may not know the answers, but perhaps you can find them together. In such cases, the journey is as important as the destination.
  • Take every opportunity to turn your discussions or research into a tangible product. Write a poem, story, or original song. Build a model. Make a scrapbook. Take photographs. Paint pictures. Draw diagrams. Make bulletin board displays or a refrigerator gallery. (You'll find specific suggestions for these in this guide.)

We offer some ideas for each chapter (including links to topic-specific Web sites), but the interests and ideas that will come from you and your children exploring and learning together will generate many more. Have fun!
