Resource Description

Anyone can be a maker—all you need is an imagination! Compelling and detailed imagery helps bring this story to life as students explore how they can use simple items they find around their homes to create things. “Be A Maker” ignites children’s thinking and encourages creativity by offering ideas and descriptions of age-appropriate projects, inviting young readers to be makers themselves. Suitable for students in Grade K–5, this book is appropriate to introduce the complex idea of the applied design process in a way that engages readers and sparks curiosity. In the classroom, the book can be used to invite discussions and ideas on how to design items for specific users or to explore opportunities to collaborate with others to build something together.
