Everyday Science: Fun and Easy Projects for Making Practical Things.
Levine, Shar; Johnstone, Leslie
This book contains 25 experiments designed to help students understand some of the science used every day. Each experiment includes a list of materials, a series of easy-to-follow steps, an explanation of the scientific principle demonstrated, and additional scientific facts and information. No special or expensive materials are required. Experiments are organized into five parts: light and optics, heat, earth science, chemistry, and electricity and magnetism. Experiments have imaginative names such as, "I Can See for Miles and Miles,""Steamed Fruit,""Grace under Pressure,""Hi-Ho Silver," and Dimmer Dementia." The book includes a glossary of terms and a reader reply form to suggest experiments created by students or teachers. (MKR)
