|For art, my six year-old daughter decorated a box with diamonds.|
to teach so that was a big plus.
TECHNOLOGY was brought into the learning, with lists of websites to research about blue diamonds. That is super for the upper grades. Internet is a wonderful resource to study the blue diamond. Also, kids who like to study up on rocks and minerals, and the like, will learn new facts from this E-book. I asked my high schooled son to research on the web, and he wrote down a few facts based on his findings.
Presentation of information with colorful pictures throughout the unit broke the monotony of data; this is good for a visual learner. I enjoyed the fact that the information was simple. There were facts that I enjoyed like how the royalty used diamonds in the past. I did not know about the specific cuts of diamond, either. I think this E-book is more for middle school children and less for teens in high school; my thirteen year-old daughter enjoyed it.
I liked the layout of the E-book. Having been taught how to critique educational material years ago, I found it easy to use this E-book. It was well-organized. Some E-books that I come across leave out a Table of Contents page, leaving one to wonder what is covered and on what pages. I liked the easy to use worksheets.
