Synopsis

Explore Transportation! by

Allowing kids to travel through time and around the globe, this entertaining guide summarizes the history and science of transportation. From camels and jet engines to pigeons and submarines, this handbook examines the unusual and exciting ways that civilizations old and new have moved people, information, and objects from place to place. Twenty-five easy-to-follow projects are included, requiring minimal adult supervision and primarily using common household products and recycled supplies. Activities range from making a homemade compass and flying a mini-parachute to deciphering Morse code and locating the North Star. Combining a hands-on element with riddles, jokes, fun facts, and cartoons, this all-inclusive activity book journeys from the evolution of the wheel to the invention of the spaceship, demonstrating that imagination can spark major changes in the world and beyond.
