It’s no secret that the best way to teach kids something new is by packaging the knowledge up into something fun or attention grabbing. Funnily enough, the same theory rings true for people of all ages, and it’s this concept that drives the creative on the “Learn Something Everyday” website.
Through the combination of a bright and colourful grid of post-it-note-like panels and fun doodles, the site presents daily fun and quirky facts accompanied by simple, related cartoon drawings.
Assuming that the user submitted facts are indeed legit, there’s a wealth of interesting, yet probably useless ditties on offer such as the following:
- Humans share about 50% of DNA with Bananas
- Bats always turn left when exiting a cave
- Cola would be green if colouring wasn’t added (that one gets you thinking eh?)
To make it easier for you to keep up-to-date with the release of new facts, there’s both an RSS feed and also a Twitter feed you can subscribe to or follow – kudos to the authors for those additions.
Don’t take my word for it though, go check out the site for yourself: http://cargocollective.com/learnsomethingeveryday.
