Susan Akass and Frances Butcher make learning fun with 35 engaging experiments that give a thorough understanding of body systems and anatomy. In Chapter 1, The Senses, activities include finding your blind spot, getting dizzy, and making snot! In Chapter 2, The Control Centre, children get to test their reflexes and memories, and trick their brain with optical illusions. In Chapter 3, Your Skeleton and Muscles, they can investigate their muscles, joints and ligaments. Chapter 4, Fuelling the Machine, explains why teeth are vulnerable to a bad diet and includes how to make a digestive system, including the poop!
