First Science Library: Up in the Air 17 Easy-to-follow Experiments for Learning Fun * Find out About Flight and How Weather Works! by Wendy Madgwick

This title features 17 easy-to-follow experiments for learning fun. You can find out about flight and how weather works! You can test whether air weighs anything, see how the shape of a dart helps it to fly, make a parachute, and much more. Fun photographs and illustrations show youngsters carrying out the practical projects in simple stages, making learning accessible and enjoyable. It is perfect for school use by 5- to 7-year-olds. It contains guidance notes for grown-up helpers using the book to teach children at home. A full glossary explains all the scientific terms used. Does hot air rise? Can air be used to lift things? Can it keep things warm? How do wings work? All of these questions and many others are answered in this exciting book, which explores the wonders of our atmosphere. Make a miniature windmill, see bubbles of air in water, and create your own weather vane to test the wind's direction. This series introduces younger readers to science in a structured but interesting way. Each book explores a different aspect of science. Fun activities encourage young children to explore and learn about the world around them, and complement the scientific points outlined in the simple introductory text.
