Fun Facts About Everyday Inventions Coloring Book
Why do they call it a Frisbee, who invented Silly Putty, and when did people start roller skating? There are little-known stories attached to even the most ordinary items from our everyday lives, and this fanciful coloring book covers 30 of them. Full-page illustrations depict blue jeans, Ivory Soap, Post-It Notes, chewing gum, and other common objects, each accompanied by a trivia-loaded caption.
Several of these are already listed separately in appropriate places in this section. They are historically accurate, include limited but interesting text, and contain suggestions for coloring. Boost™ editions, subtitled "seriously fun learning," are aligned to the Common Core with specific standards noted at the bottom of each page. A free teacher's manual can be downloaded from the Dover website.
