Product Description:

Does air take up space? What causes sound? How do periscopes work? You know that your kids will never get tired of asking you. So be prepared: seven chapters full of experiments to demonstrate questions that kids ask at one time or another, covering air, heat, sound, light, magnetism, machines, and water. These experiments are generally easy to do with everyday items and use nothing dangerous, though a few must be supervised by an adult. I was surprised by how simple yet demonstrative these experiments were. For example, to answer the question about whether sound can travel through nothing, you take a bottle, hang a little bell in it, then drop a flaming piece of paper in and cork it. The fire takes away the oxygen, leaving you with less-dense air around the bell. Almost every one can be worked by a pre-teen, and they are all demonstrative of some scientific principle. You kids will readily see the science behind our planet, and maybe not ask you! This book can be used stand-alone, but might be better alongside a more in-depth book. ~ Mark

Category Description for Physics Activity & Experiment Resources:

Science is all around us, so Explore! Each book contains 25 projects in an easy to follow format and provides simple, hands-on opportunities in a variety of science areas. Make a mold of an animal track or build a terrarium to see the water cycle in action in Rivers and Ponds. Create shadow puppets or plant a garden that blooms at night in Night Science! Make your own stalactite or grow your own crystals in Rocks and Minerals. Construct a simple circuit, paperclip switch and a solar oven in Electricity. For each chapter in the book, textual information is included with vocabulary words listed in bold with definitions. Projects are listed along with a supply list and numbered instructions. A glossary, resource page, and index are found at the back of the book. Great resources to enhance your science or unit studies and bring some fun back to science! Approx. 90 pgs each.

I liked the look of the cover. I also like the fact that these science experiments utilize household items and the description of the one experiment mentioned has captured my curiosity.

Covers 7 major topics in Physics in one book. Great price for a lot of experiments that are easy to do and likely to work on the first attempt.
