Reviews

From Booklist July 1, 2014 365 More Simple Science Experiments with Everyday Materials. Churchill, E. Richard (Author) and Loeschnig, Louis V. (Author) and Mandell, Muriel (Author), Zweifel, Frances W. (Illustrator) Mar 2014. 320 p. Black Dog & Leventhal, paperback, $12.95. Stunts, tricks, games, and projects are all included in this exhaustive compendium of hands-on science. Experiments are divided into thematic chapters covering a huge range of topics, including physical science, foods and nutrition, time, nature, space, and rocketry. Procedures are explained in step-by-step detail that includes straightforward explanations of relevant scientific concepts with loads of illustrations, graphs, and diagrams. The introduction encourages sound scientific practices such as creating hypotheses and developing a system for recording observations. Each experiment is conducted using everyday household items, making this a valuable resource for a quick science fair project or an impromptu rainyday activity. The projects are diverse, considering that some experiments take just minutes to complete, while others are more involved and even require days to see complete results. However, all of the included experiments are inquiry-based and dynamic, making the book perfect for formal instructional settings or entertaining curious minds with scientific fundamentals.
