Synopsis

Science in Seconds at the Beach Exciting Experiments You Can Do in Ten Minutes or Less by Jean Potter

Surfs up for science with these quick and easy activities. The seashore is a fantastic setting for scientific discoveries. This book offers over 100 quick and easy experiments that will help children investigate the mysteries of animals, plants, sand, shells, sun, and water. Each activity takes ten minutes or less to complete, and answers a provocative question like: Do fish close their eyes? Can you hold your breath longer than a whale? How is sand made? How can seaweed forecast the weather? Do all snail shells coil in the same direction? And why do we seem to hear the ocean in empty sea shells? Ideal for Parents, Teachers, and Libraries. * Great for teaching a wide range of science topics. JEAN POTTER (Charleston, West Virginia) has been a kindergarten teacher, a college professor, and the Acting Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education for the United States.
