National Geographic Children's Books (August 5, 2014)
Provides instructions for fifty kid-friendly science experiments and an explanation of the science involved, as well as more than twenty bonus experiments, science fair tips, and STEM connections for each project.
Why You'll Love It:
- The dynamic full-color photographs and layout meet the standard set by other National Geographic books and are undeniably appealing.
- Some experiments take days, while others take just minutes, but it is always obvious that the creators have tried each experiment.
- Readers shouldn't have major trouble gathering materials, following the steps or adapting most of the demos into science-fair projects.
Great for grades 5 and up...and here's the educator guide.
