My Giant Book of Science Projects (Paperback)

Steve Parker


The world around us is a source of incredible wonder and amazement to children. This book will reveal and explain how things work, and will respond to youngsters' first questions. It encourages readers to carry out their own practical experiments, instilling real understanding and the excitement and enthusiasm that will carry them into more `serious' science in the future. See how the wind moves a homemade sailboat, how you can hold a glass of water upside down without spilling it, and how to simulate a volcanic eruption with a simple chemical reaction! This is the perfect starter book for ages 3 to 7 - for older readers to use with minimum supervision, or for younger ones to enjoy with adult help. Ten terrific projects to help children learn about science by conducting their own experiments. These introduce and explain very simple ideas in physics, chemistry and the natural world, with activities on themes of light and shade, electricity, water, wind and volcanoes. Find out how mirrors work, tell the time by the sun, make a sound cannon to knock down skittles, and stir up a snowstorm with static electricity! All the experiments are shown in clear step-by-step photographs, and use simple materials and very basic equipment that can be found around the home.
