Abstract:

Wacky Science helps teachers embark on an extremely exciting adventure, teaching hands-on science in the classroom! Gifted students love science, and they particularly love hands-on science. One of the most exciting things about teaching hands-on science is being able to observe how students gravitate toward these motivating activities and their extraordinary ability to extrapolate additional scientific information from the concepts being taught. People of all ages, backgrounds, and educational abilities love to do science that they can directly touch, hear, observe, smell, and experience. This book contains many high-level, abstract scientific concepts that have been developed into hands-on activities. Including experiments in botany, entomology, paleontology, physics, and zoology, among others, these fun, exciting, and highly motivational activities will have students begging for more.
