The Cat in the Hat Knows Alot About That! for PBS KIDSSpring 2012 Website
The Cat in the Hat website is totally entertaining and full of educational opportunities that take the series far beyond just a TV show. Like other PBS Kids sites it's simple to navigate, free to use, and full of content. Crisp, easy to understand graphics and character voiceovers help kids (and parents!) navigate the site. While one section is dedicated to showing Cat in the Hat videos, fans of the program will enjoy the multitude of other activities on the site. Games, printable activities, "Snap-o-Rama", and Cat's Math Mayhem offer opportunities to interact with the computer and practice age appropriate skills like counting and concepts like weather and matching.
After watching an episode of Cat in the Hat called "Flower Power," I found several activities to do with my child that helped him discover the role of flowers in nature. In the games section, we found Flower Finder, in which players matched birds and bees to the flowers they use for food and pollination. I checked out the Parents page and found several more activities we could do, as well as book suggestions for taking the lesson further. For curious kids and parents looking for learning activities, the Cat in the Hat is a great resource.
