Early in the 17th century, Francis Bacon decided that the best way to learn about the world was to discover things for oneself. Since then, science has been a marriage of observation and experimentation. The experiments contained in each chapter allow young scientists to investigate basic principles using common household materials and easy-to-follow instructions. The titles are filled with dozens of color photographs that illustrate experiments and provide a glimpse of everyday and extraordinary uses of the subject. In addition, engaging features such as "Did You Know?" boxes provide fascinating facts. The "In Focus" sections offer in-depth looks at specific features of each subject. "In The Real World" boxes highlight pivotal experiments by real scientists.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-6. Each book in the Science Experiments series presents basic information and simple experiments. Color discusses the spectrum and colored light as well as the primary colors of pigment, mixing colors, and color blindness. Activities include creating a spectrum using a bottle of water and a piece of black cardboard, and making a color wheel. In Weather, readers will learn about sunlight, winds, clouds, and storms as well as making a weather vane and a rain gauge. The scientific information is rather scanty compared with similar books at this grade level, but the clearly illustrated, step-by-step directions for the science activities will make this a useful addition to many libraries. Check the Series Roundup for volumes on electricity, light, sound, and water. --Carolyn Phelan"
