First Science Library: Water Play by Wendy Madgwick

This title features 18 easy-to-follow experiments for learning fun. You can find out about rain, ice and how water works! You can make your own rain gauge, see how heat dries things out, create condensation, and much more. Fun photographs and illustrations show youngsters carrying out the practical projects in simple stages, making learning accessible and enjoyable. A glossary at the back of the book explains all the science terms used in the main text. It is ideal for school use by 5- to 7-year-olds, and also contains guidance notes for grown-up helpers using this book to teach children at home. Are bubbles always round? How can you measure rainfall? Why do some things float? What are frost and dew? All of these questions and many others are answered in this exciting book, which explores the wonderful properties of water. Watch how water expands when it freezes and turns into ice. See the magic skin known as surface tension. This series introduces younger readers to science in a structured but interesting way. Each book in the range explores a different aspect of science. Fun activities encourage children to explore and learn about the natural world, and complement the scientific points outlined in the simple introductory text.
