What is Curious George?
PBS has taken a popular children’s book series and turned it into a television show. For anyone unfamiliar with it, Curious George is a series of books, or in this case episodes, about a monkey named George and his owner, the Man with the Yellow Hat. In the show, George’s curiosity leads him to experience adventures which also teach kids about science, math, and some very basic engineering.
The site for Curious George includes clips from episodes and almost two dozen activities. The activity guide gives a thorough description of each activity and suggestions on how to incorporate what is learned in the activities into everyday life.
