Product Description:

Help children grasp astronomical concepts about our solar system with this hands-on lab experiment manual. Assisted by picture demonstrations throughout, these experiments are designed to help bring physics and astronomy down to a child’s level without “dumbing down” the information given. The beginning of the book starts with activities on how to observe, and then covers the realization of the sun and planet movements. These projects are fun and entertaining enough to involve the entire family or classroom, giving information that people of any age can walk away having learned something new. Many of these projects can be accomplished by children, but several involve concepts or necessary objects that may need adult explanation or supervision (especially when scissors, sharp objects, or heat are involved). A great supplement for students learning about astronomy in curriculum programs or unit studies.
