Synopsis

Amazing Kitchen Chemistry Projects You Can Build Yourself by Cynthia Light Brown

Ages 9 to 12 years. Kids will learn how to shoot candy and soda 10 feet up in the air or create a crystal collage with the key chemistry concepts and exciting yet educational projects in this handbook. With over two dozen fascinating projects illustrating major chemistry themes -- including atoms and molecules; the characteristics of solids, liquids, and gases; chemical reactions; acids and bases; and the properties of water -- children learn the theory behind each project and then see the principles in action. A combination of wacky experiments, yummy cooking projects, and unusual creations, the activities can all be completed using common household materials and include walking on goop, making taffy, viewing the world from inside a giant bubble, and many more sure to keep kids investigating how the world works.

Reviews

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
