Discover Science: Robots
In today's wired world, robots are everywhere: in the movies, on TV, in space, in computer games. This fact-filled book introduces the concept of a robot, and examines the many uses of robots in science, entertainment and industry. Definitions of vocabulary words are provided on each page, as well as activities on building your own robots.
The Discover Science series will capture children's imagination while laying the foundation for future learning. With age-appropriate language and an eye-catching design, this series gives young readers answers to fundamental questions about the human body, animals, planet Earth and the Solar System. At the back of each book, science experiments, colorful craft activities and notes for parents and teachers will help every reader get creative as they learn.
Maybe it is my 'old age' as a homeschool mom, but it seems that most elementary science books are light on science information but overwhelmed with childish illustrations and story lines, which is the main reason I love this impressive series. Presenting each topic in a 2-page spread, children will be captivated by the vibrant illustrations and clearly explained scientific text. Adding to the educational value, the back of the book contains notes for parents and teachers, craft activities, quizzes, weblinks, fascinating facts, and other supplemental resources. From a secular publisher, occasional references to evolution are evident. Real educational content and meticulous graphic images, this series meets the growing needs of your young Scientist! 56 pgs. sc. ~ Deanne
