Abstract:

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. A special bonus section gives kids (and their parental science partners) suggestions, tips and ideas to excel at school science fairs, as well as a model for the scientific inquiry method of observing, questioning, hypothesizing, experimenting and concluding the exact process that scientists use in their work.
