Science in Action: The Senses - Smell by Sally Hewitt


Science in Action: The Senses - Smell by Sally Hewitt

How can you smell? How does your nose work? What is it made of? The ideal first introduction to the five senses, Science in Action explores the human body using fun experiments and activities. 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.
