What’s New

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!

Issue #2 Sports – Cover

We realise that some sports could go into several categories but this is how we’ve divided it up.

Some of the sports we’re including are football, rugby, hockey and ice hockey, swimming, diving, sprinting, marathon, horse racing, motor racing, skiing, tennis, cricket and many more.

CUBiC Magazine ISSN

CUBiC Magazine is quarterly with approx publishing dates in each June, September, December and March – targeted to the Summer, Autumn, Winter and Easter breaks when children typically have a little more time to read such publications as ours.

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

CUBiC Magazine Past Monthly Issues

Here are some scanned covers for a few of the past issues of CUBiC Magazine in it’s previous incarnation which was a monthly publication.

Christa

Christa McAuliffe By far the most popular issue which sold over an over was Christa – the astronaut. This issue was all about space and was in part a tribute to Christa McAuliffe who died on January 28, 1986 as one of the seven crew members killed in the Space Shuttle Challenger shortly after liftoff. This issue was on repeat sale for a long time at the Greenwich Observatory in London.

The Old CUBiC Magazine

This old version of the magazine was A5, 48 pages and published monthly.

We’ll add more spread samples in other posts.

These are now all out of print are we are unable to print any further back issues.
