What happens if you water plants with juice?
Where can you find bacteria in your house?
Is slug slime as strong as a glue stick?
How would your child find the
answers to these questions? In The
Curious Kid's Science Book, your child will
learn to design his or her own science
investigations to determine the answers!
Children will learn to ask their own scientific
questions, discover value in failed experiments,
and -- most importantly -- have a blast with
science. The 100+ hands-on activities in the
book use household items to playfully teach
important science, technology, engineering, and
math skills. Each creative activity includes
age-appropriate explanations and (when possible)
real life applications of the concepts covered.
Adding science to your at-home schedule will
make a positive impact on your child's learning.
Just one experiment a week will help build
children's confidence and excitement about the
sciences, boost success in the classroom, and
give them the tools to design and execute their
own science fair projects.
