Science Experiments That Surprise and Delight: Fun Projects for Curious Kids based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The explainations are clear and fantastic, the scientific terms are written in such an easy to understand way that I seriously think early textbooks should learn from the author. I gave this as a gift to a young girl who said that school made her not like science anymore. This book is so easy to understand with readily available ingredients, and lots of step-by-step pictures to accompany the instructions, that she was excited to spend the holiday break doing these experiments. Now that's a sign of a really successful book!
I really enjoyed doing all of these experiments with my 5 1/2 yr old son. I could see him doing these in a couple of years without assistance. There are lists of materials that you will need at the beginning of each experiment and the step-by-step directions are very clear. The science explanations at the end of each experiment were clear, although a little over his head (some sunk in). We had almost all of the materials on hand (I think I needed to buy corn starch). We actually checked this out at the library and I am now ordering one to give as a gift.
