KidSpirit Online :: Numbers & Symbols

Published July 15, 2014 Posted by
 
KidSpirit is an online publication created by and for eleven to seventeen year olds, which empowers kids to explore the deeper side of life in a spirit of openness. KidSpirit is an unaffiliated spiritual magazine for young people of all backgrounds who like to think about "the meaning of life and the big questions that affect us all." The newest issue theme is Numbers & Symbols, with reviews of The Hunger Games and The Da Vinci Code, a question & comment section with prompts like "What significance do symbols have within a culture?" and "Could numbers exist without their symbols?" Essays range in topic, from high school junior Katie Reis's "Mall Walkers and McDonald's: A Study of American Symbols" to Fellow for the Women's Initiative for Self Empowerment Misbah Awan's "Zero Is Hella Shady; by Humans, for Humans" - a humorous and well documented research essay.

If you are 11-17 (or even a bit older I'm sure is okay), this is a wonderful online publication in which to enrich your critical thinking and wile away those summer hours while keeping your neurons in excellent working condition.
