Visual learning and chart interpretation

Thank you to the early adopters who’ve been proof reading CUBiC Magazine themselves and with their children.

The most common point of feedback has been to use more charts and graphs in the magazine which may not have explicit questions as in a maths workbook, but will be accompanied by a few “What do you think?” questions.

Although it’s too late to put more charts into Issue #1 about Nature, we’ll be putting more charts and pie-charts etc into Issue #2 about Sports. I think this will work well because Sports by it’s very nature lends itself to statistics and numerical analysis.

Thanks again to all our young proof-readers!

Blueberries can save your life

Blueberries have been ranked number one because of their antioxidant health benefits compared with more than 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables. So if in doubt, eat blueberries.

NOTE: Antioxidant means chemicals in the fruit which help to prevent diseases, which is why eating fruit is so important. They literally can save your life…

What meaning does giving flowers have?

Sample spread from CUBiC Magazine Issue #1

There are many different situations when you might give flowers to someone. For example for a birthday, if someone is feeling ill or unfortunately if someone has passed away.

Even though flowers in a vase may only last for a couple of weeks, they can bring fragrance, joy and a little bit of nature into any someone’s life.

What meaning do poppies have?

Do you know what special meaning poppies have? If you’re not sure, try looking it up.

Clue: it has something to do with the first world war.

What is a Husky?

The word “Husky” comes from a word referring to the people who lived in the Arctic, called Eskimo’s. The dogs were first called “Huskimo’s” and they just called “Husky”.

Sample Pages from CUBiC Magazine Issue #1

Husky’s usually live in cold, snowy areas and are very fast when it comes to pulling sledges. Husky owners typically breed the fastest and strongest Husky’s to produce even stronger, faster dogs.

Types of Husky

There are lots of different types of Husky including:

– Siberian Husky

– Labrador Husky

– Alaskan Husky

Sample spread from Issue #1 of CUBiC Magazine

Here’s a sample spread from the upcoming firsts issue of the relaunched CUBiC Magazine.

This spread is from the “Space” section and is an example of how the magazine is interactive and asking the child reading the magazine to get involved.

CUBiC Magazine is printed on 100% FSC Certified paper

‘FSC’ stands for Forest Stewardship Council, an organisation that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide.

The Forest Stewardship Council sets standards for forest products, independently certifies that these standards have been met, and bestows labels upon the products that qualify.

Forest Management and Chain of Custody

FSC runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody.

The FSC system allows businesses and consumers to identify, purchase and use wood, paper and other forest products made with materials from well-managed forests and/or recycled sources.

First relaunch issue of CUBiC Magazine

Here’s the draft front cover of Issue 1 of the relaunched CUBiC Magazine which we estimate will be published in June 2020.

It’s all about nature – specifically Space (hey, you have to start right at the beginning), The Earth, Plants and Animals.
