Hello parents, teachers and students.
How old have I been? Can you believe it’s already October? Bring ghouls, goblins and Halloween candies.
This week, KSAT Kids announced a new partnership with Noun, an educational platform that provides engaging content online for both students and teachers.
This partnership provides fun and engaging videos of students exploring the topic through live interviews with experts and celebrities. Interviews are recorded, animated and released as episodes. Episodes are broadcast biweekly on newscasts and are available to watch at KSAT.com/kids.
In the first edition, students interview respected map experts, map collectors and historians Jim Shine, who share knowledge of maps and cultural history. Shine shares specific details while answering a student’s question about how long the map was made and explains why he started drawing. He also shares some of his adventures and fun facts.
Are you interested in bringing nouns to school or class and attending interviews? You can do this by clicking here.. Class interviews will be featured on the KSAT12 online and on weekdays in this newsletter, as well as in the GMSA.
This week’s Caset Kids student spotlight focuses on 15-year-old Jonako Barbias, a teenager who has always loved fashion, and especially shoes.
Covarrubias has created the Lace Up Sneaker Show, which has grown from just 30 vendors today to over 150 vendors. He has hosted 10 different shows till now. Well done, Jonah!
Parents, are you looking for fun activities for your kids? Now, why don’t you join the latest KSAT12 color contest?
Ask your kids to decorate their own calavera images and try scoring an iPad mini! The Skull Decorating Contest will run next Friday, October 8.
All you have to do is download the color sheet, print it, color the photo and upload it on our website. Winners will be chosen at random from submissions and some of the best will be featured in our newsletter and future newscasts!
Finally, meteorologist Katie Blake conducts cool scientific experiments that give kids the fun of learning about density. They take each part (seed, gut, flesh, stem) of the pumpkin and pluck them to determine which part is the most dense and which part is the least dense.
Be sure to watch GMSA @ 9 on Wednesday when meteorologist Katie Blake will be demonstrating and explaining the importance behind it.
Have a nice day everyone!
