Dig Magazine – Click Topics Below for More Info
Egypt, Greece, China, England, India—just a few of the places the magazine DIG Into History will take readers ages 9-14. It’s here that history and archaeology meet, as experts in their fields take you behind the scenes—unraveling some of history’s most baffling mysteries and exploring skeletal finds and ruins at excavation sites throughout the world. What’s more, the authors offer insights and information not found in textbooks, especially in the Let’s Go Digging 10- to 15-page section. Each issue is theme-related, and the photos and illustrations accompanying each article have detailed captions that help bring the text to life. An excellent way to introduce interdisciplinary learning, both in the classroom and at home, DIG helps readers gain a better understanding of today’s world and current events. The Fun With Words feature highlights the etymology of words and expressions that relate to the theme. Interestingly focuses on a complementary bit of information that is sure to become a favored turn-to page. So, too, is What’s Wrong Here, which asks readers to identify an anachronism in a piece of art (the topic is theme-related as well). Artifacts features an interesting bit of information revealed through an amazing fact. Monthly contests and publication of readers’ submissions offer readers a more personal involvement in the magazine.
