Show Me How: I Can Do Science Fun-to-Do Experiments for Kids, Shown Step by Step by Steve Parker, Jane Parker

This title features fun-to-do experiments for kids, shown step by step. It includes 16 stimulating projects that help children to learn about science by conducting their own experiments. It introduces and explains very simple ideas in physics, chemistry and biology: light and shade, water, weather, sound, and everything children can see, touch and hear. You can find out how mirrors work, tell the time by the sun, investigate sound by making a string telephone, and see how the wind moves a homemade sail boat. All the experiments are shown in clear step-by-step photographs, and use simple materials and very basic equipment that can be found around the home. It is the perfect starter book for ages 3 to 7 years - for older readers to use with minimum supervision, and for younger children to enjoy with adult help. The world around us is a source of incredible wonder and amazement to children. This book will reveal and explain how things work, and respond to youngsters' first questions.It encourages readers to devise and carry out their own practical experiments - such as exploring the way light travels in straight lines by making shadow puppets, and melting ice cubes to learn about temperature - instilling real understanding and the excitement and enthusiasm that will carry them positively into more 'serious' science in the future.
