School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-Visually interesting, simple science activities for lower grade levels. There are a few oldies but goodies here (rubber egg, bending water with a charged balloon, etc.) and enough unusual projects to make this series worth consideration. Though librarians should first check the materials list-a few projects require specialty supplies like magnetic powder or Epsom salts. Neat "How It Works" sidebars add pedagogic content. Kids can make a geode in an eggshell or re-create the rock cycle using crayon shavings. And if the moldy bread experiment in Life Science doesn't convince kids to wash their hands before touching food, what will? -VERDICT Ideal for science classrooms or clubs. © Copyright 2017.
