KABOOOOOOOM! You're now an honorary children's librarian! Time for you to employ Supercharged Stories: fully-packed programs for kids age 5 - 12 that jump off from a great book into all kinds of fun and engrossing activities and challenges.
Have a blast!
Supercharged Stories: The Boo Boos that Changed the World
Today's Supercharged Story features The Boo Boos that Changed the World, by Barry Wittenenstein, illustrated by Jacksonville native Chris Hsu. Thank Chris for giving us the book to use, and let us know how your kids enjoy this program with you at the helm!
When you cut yourself, what’s the first thing you do? Reach for a Band-Aid, right? Before the 1920s, Band-Aids did not exist. Did you know that it was invented by accident? Click the book cover below to read more about the invention of this everyday object.
Do you think Earle and Josephine expected to change the world? Why or why not?
Why weren’t Band-Aids successful right away? What would life be like without Band-Aids?
Make your own Band-Aid
There are hundreds, maybe even thousands!, of Band-Aid designs. Invent one more! Draw the shape of a Band-Aid and decorate in a style you’d be proud to wear.
What everyday problem do you think you could solve? Think of the problem and write about the solution you would invent.
In this game, everyone can tag and be tagged! Once you are tagged, you must place your hand at the place you were touched. Keep playing! If you are tagged 3 times, you are frozen and must stand still until you are tagged again to be brought back into play!
