Postby Joy » Wed Oct 13, 2010 7:53 am

Hi Joy

I also have same concern.

We subscribe to young scientist (Level 3) and National Geographic Explorer.

I think both are good as I remembered as one question we came across regarding why mudskipper is able to stay out of the water for a long period of time and dd is able to answer based on she had read this piece of information before in young scientist .

National Geographic Explorer also very good, e.g. there is a write out in Fungus Among Us.

I am also looking forward to know more recommendation from other parents/students.

Cheers

Hi Brenda,

I have got the young sci too.

For national geo, I encourage dd to read but she finds it dry.Hence, I hope to find something that can interest her.

Hope some ksp forum members, esp those who has just done psle, who are able to share their thoughts too.

cheers

Hi Joy,

How about National Geographic for kids? That mag is very kid friendly with a lot of interesting information. My kids love it. Although they have not sat for their PSLE, I can see their interest in science take off and they are also better able to analyze science questions.

Lately, we started a subscription to this magazine called Current Science. It's distributed by Nurturecraft. I can't seem to find it on their website. Maybe you can call to ask (hopefully they're not going stop the service :o).

My son is also another science nut, so I was glad to find this one. We saw it at the Book Fair earlier this year and he asked for it. Seems to like it every month, together with his Young Scientist, Discovery Box etc. Reading level is higher - supposedly for lower secondary school students but I think primary school kids can hack it.

FWIW, DH has been a long time subscriber to Nat Geo but my son doesn't like it, probably cos he still catch no ball on that one!

How much is the subscription fee? Any special price during book fair?

You can try horrible science series. These are books not magazines though

I can't for the life of me remember, Sleepy. There must have been some promotions - think we even received a game as a token.
