Sunlight, Skyscrapers, and Soda Pop: The Wherever-You-Look Science Book.
Bennett, Andrea T.; Kessler, James H.
This book contains a series of hands-on science activities for young children. The activities are designed to be done by children with an adult partner. An interactive learning feature is also included. Through these activities, children can discover that science is all around them and that science helps to explain why things happen the way they do. The activities relate to something to do or something to observe. Science search challenges ask children to locate other examples of the science introduced in the activity. Topics include static electricity, reflection, magnetism, design strength, stability, bridge building, center of gravity, surface tension, density, pigments, eye- hand coordination, elasticity, seed growth, vibration, optical illusions, liquids, and evaporation and condensation.
