365 Weird & Wonderful Science Experiments
As a homeschooler passionate about teaching science, I love this book, but I think families who are more science resistant will find much to appreciate as well! Using household items and minimal parental supervision, this book provides a much-needed resource to keep older children busy while you teach the littles, or a fun way to introduce science lessons. An introduction begins the activity, along with a supply list and step by step instructions. An explanation of the experiment follows, as well as "what if" questions for some of the activities. Diverse activities cover all branches of science: for example, floating bowling balls, chemical clock, mold terrarium, butter making, measuring light's speed, and countless others. Pick one experiment to do per day. Or better yet, let your children select one and watch their love of science expand. 256 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne
