Synopsis

Science in Action: The Senses - Sight by Sally Hewitt

How does it work? How and why do we smell, see, fee,hear...? The ideal introduction to the sense of sight. Senses provide all sorts of information about what is going on around us. The activities in Science In Action encourage young readers to understand how each of their senses work, for example by making their own sound waves or trying a series of optical illusions. Clear and simple text helps explain tricky scientific topics such as how the tongue tastes different flavours and how our eyes work. Using simple explanations and engaging photos, this book encourages children to think about how their senses work, while taking their first steps into scientific discovery.
