Glues, Brews, and Goos: Recipes and Formulas for Almost Any Classroom Project.
Marks, Diana F.
This book emphasizes children's learning and is filled with recipes and formulas. The goal of this book is to connect students to the past, provide links to nature, show the importance of science in everyday life, and help students see themselves as part of a global community. Many of the recipes and formulas in this book have multicultural aspects and have been around for years or even centuries. Others have been updated to include microwave ovens or recycled materials. All the projects have been kid-tested and use materials that are easy to obtain with directions that are simple and clear and designed for students. Chapters are as follows: "Clays and Doughs"; "Salt Map Mixtures"; "Papier-Mache"; "Plaster of Paris"; "Glues and Pastes"; "Paints"; "Natural Dyes"; "Bird Food and Bird Feeders"; "Crystals and Crystal Gardens"; "Non-Newtonian Fluids and Slimes"; "Bubble Solutions and Bubble Frames"; "Volcanic Actions and Other Chemical Reactions"; "Invisible Inks"; "Soaps"; "Candles"; "Recycled Paper"; "Dried Flowers, Potpourri, and Pomanders"; "Breads"; "Edible Art"; "Dairy Products"; "Treats That Students Can Make"; and "Miscellaneous Activities." Contains references. (JRH)
