Can you remember all your dreams? Can you predict how long it will take you to spot 250 smiles? Personalize these colorful and quirky diagrams, charts, and graphs as you keep track of the most curious and remarkable elements of your everyday life. Not only a robust and hands-on tutorial on infographics, this activity book also invites you to be present, to notice, and to reflect upon the vast world around you—and inside of you—inevitably leading to new insights. Log your own unique, one-of-a-kind life, and add the extra to the ordinary!
As kids work their way through the journal, the infographics become beautiful, meaningful works of art. Along the way, users are inspired to become better observers, to delight in the rich data of their lives, and to mindfully reflect upon the patterns they discover.
Graphs, infographics, maps, and other visual ways of representing data are included on standardized tests, and educators need new and engaging ways to teach this content. This journal will get kids writing, drawing, expressing their emotions—and enjoying it, no less!
PERSONALIZABLE: Users can personalize the front cover by writing in their names as the coauthors—after all, they provide all the interesting bits! Then, when they begin a new activity, they can color the corresponding flower petal containing the name of that activity, tracking journalers' progress. It's a visual—and interactive—table of contents!
