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?

Make a miniature windmill, see bubbles of air in water, and create your own weather vane to test the wind's direction.
