Time for Kids Super Science Book
The book covers aspects of earth, physical and life sciences - dovetailing with the school science curriculum - as kids tackle various activities to satisfy their natural curiosity. Easy-to-do experiments are clearly laid out, requiring readily available materials, and accompanied by full-color step-by-step illustrations, making science come alive in the home. Sidebars or wrap copy extend the hands-on approach to include answers to questions kids often ask about the subject matter: 'Why is the sky blue?' might accompany a light refraction activity, for example. 'What causes volcanoes to erupt?' would be paired with a 'make a volcano' experiment. Interesting facts, 'Top 5s' and 'Did You Knows' are sprinkled throughout the book. A special bonus section gives kids (and their parental science partners) suggestions, tips and ideas to excel at school science fairs, as well a model for the scientific inquiry method of observing, questioning, hypothesizing, experimenting and concluding - the exact process that scientists use in their work.
