LoveReading View on Bubbles & Balloons 35 Amazing Science Experiments

Who doesn’t like playing with balloons and bubbles? Now you can have all the fun and learn about science at the same time.  There are 35 different activities in this book, each using a balloon or bubbles and, mostly, everyday household objects as equipment, from dried yeast to bubble wrap. There’s a strong ‘wow factor’ to the experiments, whether that’s making a long snake of colourful bubbles, or pushing a bamboo skewer through a balloon without causing it to pop, and they’re clearly explained with the help of illustrations and photographs. Each activity features paragraphs called ‘let’s investigate’ and ‘inside the science’ which explain the processes involved. Fascinating, informative stuff, and there’s even a chapter on cooking with bubbles – after all, what’s cooking if not science? ~ Andrea Reece


Bubbles & Balloons 35 Amazing Science Experiments Synopsis

Calling all budding scientists - it's time to have fun with bubbles and balloons! Most children, and even some adults, are fascinated by bubbles and love playing with balloons. In Bubbles & Balloons Susan Akass has created 35 fascinating experiments to show children how having fun with bubbles and balloons can go well beyond playtime. Projects include making rainbow bubbles, creating square bubbles, and playing bubble tennis with bubbles that bounce rather than burst, as well as putting a skewer through a balloon without bursting it, making a balloon rocket and balancing helium balloons. There is a clear explanation of the science behind each experiment as well an 'investigate' feature to encourage children to develop their science skills further.
